The composition is spilled with boiling water and a urea solution. It is recommended to add crushed eggshells, a half-liter can of ash and a couple of tablespoons of superphosphate to a bucket of mixture into the soil mixture. Then it must be mixed and covered with a hot potassium permanganate solution, after which the soil can be used to plant seeds. It is recommended to dive the seedlings and start hardening a few weeks before planting, taking the plants to the balcony or terrace.
Sowing is carried out in March, and in May, after the end of the frost, the plants can be planted in the ground at the rate of 4 bushes per square meter. Cultivation is possible both in the open field and in greenhouses.

Alena S., Nizhnyaya Tura:
“I have been using Olenka tomatoes for three years now, I don’t get a particularly high yield, but thanks to the good resistance of the plants, the fruits are there in any weather. The neat shape of the tomatoes allows them to be used for a beautiful setting, and the bushes always look good on the site, so I often plant them in the foreground. "
Evgeny M., Satka:
“I used to grow old varieties without being interested in new ones. However, I heard reviews about this variety from a neighbor who planted it, and decided to try it myself. I studied the characteristics and description of the tomato variety Olya and began to grow. The result pleased me: it is not difficult to take care of the plants, and the yield is quite high. Neat and tasty fruits are formed, which are convenient to roll into jars and are pleasant to eat right from the bush. "
Svetlana M., Novosibirsk:
“This year I decided to try the Olya variety for the first time. I grew it in a greenhouse. I liked the high yield, disease resistance of the plant. However, the taste is not very - close to the store, there is no such pleasant aroma as the old varieties. But even and beautiful brushes look good, and you can boast of such. "
