The soil is made up of a mixture of garden soil with humus and a small portion of washed river sand. Seeds are sown with a depth of 2 cm, lightly sprinkled with peat, sprayed with water, covered with foil. For germination, a temperature of about 25 degrees is needed.
Advice: When sprouts appear on the surface, the containers are moved to bright light. From time to time, the seedling containers are turned for uniform development.
Watering is moderate, from a watering can or a spray bottle.
After the unfolding of the first pair of true leaves, the seedlings are dived into separate pots and fed with liquid complex fertilizer. After 30 days after sowing, young tomatoes need to be hardened, this will prepare them for life in the open field.
