The seeds are initially prepared for planting. Usually soaked in a weak solution of potassium permanganate, to exclude the occurrence of diseases. Then some use special growth stimulants in which the seeds are soaked overnight. Further, the seeds are usually placed on wet material for pecking.
Seedlings are sown in March-April in a special soil for tomatoes and peppers. Sowing depth - 1 cm, the distance between plants is about 1 cm. Cover with foil for several days to create sufficient moisture. When germinating, open. Watering is infrequent, but abundant. Do not let water get on the leaves, this will destroy the plants.
When 2 full sheets appear, they are seated in separate cups (picking). Pick containers with holes in the bottom. A pick is needed to strengthen the root system and the plant as a whole. When the plant has about 10 full-fledged leaves and its growth is 20-25 cm, planting in open ground or a greenhouse is possible. Usually on the 50th day after landing. Before planting in the ground, the seedlings are usually hardened, the vents are opened for several hours, or taken out into the fresh air.
The soil temperature during planting should be at least 20 degrees. Plants are planted around mid-May. The greenhouse can be planted earlier. For open ground, a special shelter from the cold should be provided. Fragile plants cannot withstand the weather.
Tomatoes are usually planted in a checkerboard pattern, at a distance of about 40 cm from each other. The aisle between the rows should be approximately 70 cm. When planting in a permanent place, holes filled with mineral fertilizer or mullein should be prepared. A few weeks before planting the plants, the soil is dug up with humus and disinfected with copper sulfate. Warm up using shelters. Good precursors for tomatoes are cucumbers, zucchini, carrots. You cannot plant on areas where potatoes grew last year.
Tomatoes are planted in cloudy weather, or in the evening, so that the sun does not shock the plants. After planting, the tomatoes are well watered at the root and left without action for a week and a half. After that, regular fertilizing with mineral fertilizers is relevant, every one and a half weeks. Mulching and loosening are good for plant growth. Watering is not frequent, abundant at the root. The variety does not require grazing. Only the formation of a bush into one stem.
A garter is only required in the case of multiple fruits. The garter is held to individual pegs or trellises with ribbons made of synthetic materials, other materials can cause stem rot. Flowering occurs in mid-June, after the fruit set, it is required to stop interfering with the soil, except for watering. Harvesting at the end of June. Will have time to ripen again in the presence of new seedlings.
