The bushes of the tomato hybrid Fat Neighbor are resistant to diseases: fusarium, tobacco mosaic virus and cladosporium.
Reviews of gardeners showed that this hybrid grows better in a seedling way. In this case, the seeds are planted in a warm room at an air temperature of 22-25 degrees. Choose light, fertile soil. Seeds are sown to a depth of 0.5 centimeters, irrigated with a spray bottle and covered with foil until germination. After the first shoots appear, the film is removed and the seedlings are placed in a warm and sunny place for further growth.
Watering continues to be done with warm water from a spray bottle so that the earth does not get lost in a lump.
A pick is carried out when two permanent leaves appear on the seedlings. Plants are planted in separate pots. Nowadays, planting seedlings in peat containers is popular, which can be purchased at any seed store. In this case, the root system is not damaged during transplantation, the seedlings are planted in a permanent place of growth right in the pot.
Transplant seedlings into open or closed ground under certain conditions:
- The soil should warm up to at least 15 degrees.
- No night frost.
- The average daily air temperature is 22-25 degrees. Only under such conditions will the seedlings take root well and will not freeze.
Tomatoes are planted in a checkerboard or row order. A distance of 40-50 centimeters is left between the plants. So on one square meter, from 3 to 5 plants are placed. To grow a high-quality crop, you need constant care for tomatoes.
Usually, caring for tomatoes consists of the following manipulations:
- garter of plants to the crossbar;
- pinching of excess processes;
- timely watering of plants;
- fertilization of beds and bushes with mineral and organic fertilizers;

These conditions must be observed in order to get a bountiful and high-quality harvest, regardless of the place and time of planting.
