Tip: Plant seedlings of this hybrid at several times, as well as seeds directly in the soil for a seedless crop. The last fruits can be harvested at the end of September and ripened at home. They do not lose their taste when harvested in the phase of milky-wax ripeness.
The timing of sowing seeds for seedlings depends on where it is planned to plant the plants in a permanent place. The following options are possible:
- in a spring heated greenhouse, sowing is carried out in mid-February;
- in a spring unheated greenhouse - at the end of February;
- in open ground - in the first decade of March;
- direct sowing in open ground in two terms - at the end of April and at the beginning of May;
- direct sowing in open ground using an autumn mobile greenhouse - at the end of May.
Tomato seedlings must be fed every 10-14 days. They accept humic fertilizers well. With a lack of light, the plants are supplemented with a phytolamp.
Caring for tomatoes in the greenhouse
The main care works are watering, weeding and loosening, feeding and shaping the bushes. You need to water tomato plants in a greenhouse twice a week, and in a hot period - every other day. After each watering, the soil must be loosened and weeds must be removed at the same time, they can be carriers of pests and diseases.
It is better if the soil in the greenhouse is covered with peat, sawdust or any other material. The formation of the bush includes pinching the plants. Stepsons should be removed until they exceed 2-2.5 cm, using a disinfected instrument, for example, scissors. The plant forms into a single stem. Heavy brushes need to be tied up additionally.
