In the southern regions of the country, tomatoes are grown in open areas, without shelter for the winter. In the medium strip climate and other regions with similar weather conditions, they are grown in greenhouses. In the cold climatic areas, the rocket grade grows in heated greenhouses.

In the pots, either other seed capacities are sown about a couple of months before planting seedlings to the ground in the garden. The care of shoots is not difficult. These are typical manipulations carried out in the traditional way:

  • Temporary decrease in temperature at the first sprouts;

  • Picking 10-12 days of shoots;

  • moderate watering and pair of feeding.

The variety is required intensive nutrition, which it takes from the soil. He needs feeding fertilizers with high potassium content.

Seedlings must be hardening before landing on the garden. Tomatoes are planted into a heated substrate. In greenhouse conditions, with successful care, tomatoes grow more intensively. In this regard, bushes need to be searched for greater distance. Although recently the landing of determinant varieties in the greenhouse is not practicing. To save the volume under the film, seek to grow precisely tall tomatoes.

Care for tomatoes could be considered completely typical if there were no high need for nutrient trace elements and moisture. Watered plants with water, slightly heated under the sun. Each bush takes 2-5 liters of warm water. It depends on the weather and the development phase of tomato culture.

The soil needs to be maintained in moderately humid state, until the very beginning of the maturation of tomatoes. As soon as the skin on the fruits starts to blush, watering stops.

Tomatoes fertilize potassium in a mixture with wood ash in the planting process. You need to feed the bushes and in the period of growth. After two weeks, they need to be fostered with phosphorus (40 g of superphosphate is bred on the water bucket, calculated on a couple of dozen bushes). Even after 14 days, in addition to superphosphate, the soil is introduced as much potassium sulfate. Next, as it grows, tomatoes are watered with a special ash solution. Effectively work with rocket and extractive feeding.
