Important! Everyone is used to soaking tomato seeds before sowing. It turns out that plants from dry seeds are stronger and more resistant.

Stage one: sowing seeds

To prepare the soil in which the seedlings of tall tomatoes will rise, they usually take two parts of garden soil, mixing half with humus and river sand. There are recommendations to prepare identical soils both for boxes with seedlings and for greenhouses where bushes will grow. In this case, the adaptation of plants will be painless.

Branded seeds of this tomato variety enter the retail network already processed, so they are simply laid out in containers, lightly sprinkled with soil, moistened, covered with glass or film and kept warm - up to 230 C. The optimal sowing time is the second decade of March. We must also count on the fact that the sprouts will be planted two months old.

Seedling care

Tomato plants Pink figs are hygrophilous. The soil is regularly watered with warm water - up to 200 C. It is advisable to avoid getting drops on the leaves. The first three weeks, the seedlings must be supplemented during the day. In the phase of two true leaves, a pick is carried out with the planting of tomatoes in separate containers. Plants take root for about two weeks, after this period, feeding begins.

For seedlings it is best to use special complex mineral fertilizers: "Sudarushka", "Kristalon", "Master", "AgroMaster", "Kemira". Young plants are also fed with potassium monophosphate: 1 tbsp. a spoonful of the drug in 10 liters of water, or superphosphate.

Plants in the greenhouse

Strong, healthy tomato seedlings, 30-35 cm high, on which there are at least ten leaves, the rudiments of ovaries appear, are transferred to the greenhouse. This process usually occurs in mid-May when the soil warms up. The soil is watered with solutions of copper sulfate or potassium permanganate to remove lurking infectious agents. When planting, take into account the rather exuberant growth of a bush of the Fig Pink tomato variety. The distance between the holes is left sufficient: 50 cm. The calculation is carried out in this way: if a bush of a tall tomato is formed into two stems, per 1 sq. m 3 plants are planted. And accordingly, four single-stemmed bushes can be planted in this area.

Supports are immediately installed for tomato plants of the Pink Fig variety, if there are no perennial trellises in the greenhouse. As the bushes grow, the branches are carefully tied up. Particular attention is paid to the lower branches of the bush with the largest fruits, checking the strength of the garters and supports so that the plant does not break. After the second or third hand, the lateral processes that appear are removed.

Tomatoes of this variety are watered with warm water, its optimum temperature is 200 C. An important feature of care is watering under the root of the plant so that the soil does not wash out, and the water does not fall on the leaves and stems. Moisture is best distributed using the drip system. Uniform moisture is especially important for each tomato bush during fruit ripening. After watering, the greenhouse must be ventilated so that favorable conditions for the formation of rot are not created. The dried soil is loosened, weeds are removed. During the season, tall tomato plants must be fed 3-4 times with potash and phosphorus fertilizers.

Pest and disease control

For tomato plants, Figs Pink, which are grown in a greenhouse, prevention of fungal infections is necessary. For this purpose, spraying the bushes with the drug "Fitosporin" is used according to the instructions. They get rid of insect pests by using a weak solution of potassium permanganate. If the damage to the leaves is large, insecticides are used. When the fruits ripen, tomato bushes are sprayed with decoctions of plants that scare off whiteflies, aphids or spider mites: yarrow, chamomile, celandine, marigolds, onion husks. A nematode that infects the roots of a tomato bush can be fought by disinfecting the ground with strong poisons.
