How to care for a tomato outdoors and indoors

Growing seedlings is one of the most important steps in growing tomatoes at home.

The optimal time for sowing seeds is the second half of March.

Description of growing planting material:

  • Soak the seeds in a solution of potassium permanganate for 30 minutes;
  • Pour the substrate into the boxes. Soil temperature should be more than +15 degrees;
  • Make grooves in the ground and sow seeds. Drizzle;
  • Cover containers with clear glass. When sprouts appear, remove the glass;
  • When the bushes grow up, dive them into separate containers;
  • 2 weeks before planting in a permanent place, the seedlings should be hardened. For half an hour every day, the seedlings are taken out into the street. So the seedlings quickly adapt to new conditions;
  • Bushes are planted in the beds at the end of May.

Hybrid Ekaterina is recommended to be planted in open sunny areas. Bushes do not tolerate stagnant rainwater and shade. It is preferable to choose fertile soils. If there is an insufficient amount of nutrients in the ground, then organic or mineral fertilizers can be applied before planting the bushes.

During the growing season, it is necessary to apply mineral fertilizers without nitrogen content.

A month after planting the seedlings, it must be hilled. This will allow the root system to grow better. After 14 days, hilling must be repeated again.

Another effective way to increase yields is to tap the stems with a wooden stick. Tapping is necessary so that the bushes are better pollinated. Thanks to this action, tomatoes ripen 8 days earlier.

About three times a week, the bushes are tapped with a light wooden stick. If the weather is sunny, one tap will be enough. If cloudy, then 2-3.

Quick, jerky movements can cause all the pollen to crumble. When ovaries are formed on the first three inflorescences, the procedure can be stopped. Also, the bushes can be sprayed with boric acid solution. Spraying is carried out during the period of active formation of ovaries and fruits.
