The plot is chosen well sanctified, but protected from cold winds. Negative to the development of culture affect groundwater, which can be close to the root system. They should be located at least 2 meters from the surface of the soil.

When landing several seedlings, the distance between them should be at least 3-4 m. Landing pit is preparing in advance. Its size depends on the root system. The volume is approximately in a depth of 50 cm, in width – up to 1 m. Filled by layers. 1/3 wells falling asleep fertile soil mixed with humus and mineral fertilizers. Next 1/3 – only fertile soil without any additives.
