Growing features

Seeds are sown for seedlings in March or early April. Tomatoes need light, fertile soil, consisting of a mixture of garden soil and humus.

For more nutritional value, superphosphate or wood ash is added to the mixture. Seeds are soaked for 10-12 hours in a growth stimulator... Sowing with a depth of 2 cm, the container is covered with foil and placed in a warm place. After the sprouts appear, the containers are exposed to bright light.

In the phase of formation of 2 true leaves, the seedlings dive into separate pots. Watering is moderate, only with warm, settled water. Immediately after the pick, it is recommended to fertilize with liquid complex fertilizer. Another top dressing is carried out before moving the seedlings to a permanent place.

Planting under a film or greenhouse is possible in the first half of May, plants are planted in open ground closer to the beginning of June. The soil should be completely warmed up. Before planting, the soil is loosened, phosphorus and potassium fertilizers are laid out in each hole (no more than 1 tablespoon). The plantings do not thicken, per 1 sq. m place no more than 3 plants.

Watering is plentiful, but not frequent (once every 6-7 days). During the season, plants need to be fed 3-4 times.... It is recommended to alternate organic matter and complex mineral fertilizers with a predominance of potassium and phosphorus. After the beginning of flowering, nitrogen-containing dressings are canceled, they can inhibit the formation of ovaries. The bushes are formed into 1 or 2 stems, removing stepchildren and lower leaves.

Pests and diseases

The variety is resistant to major diseases: late blight, fusarium, tobacco mosaic.

To completely secure the landing, you need to take preventive measures. The soil for seedlings is calcined in the oven, before planting in the greenhouse, the soil is spilled with a hot solution of potassium permanganate.

To prevent fungal diseases, seedlings are regularly sprayed with phytosporin or other non-toxic bio-preparations. A pale pink solution of potassium permanganate will also help. With the threat of late blight, plantings are sprayed with copper-containing preparations.

Against insect pests, you can use industrial insecticides or proven folk remedies: soapy water, a solution of potassium permanganate and ammonia, a decoction of onion husks, chamomile, celandine. Frequent ventilation of greenhouses and weeding is recommended.

By planting a few Eaglebeak bushes in a greenhouse, greenhouse or open field, gardeners can expect a great harvest. If desired, the seeds for the next sowing can be collected by yourself.
