Opinions at vegetable growers about the variety “Auria” were divided, but in some kitchen gardens it occupies an honorable place.
First you need to conduct sowing seeds for seedlings. Such a procedure is carried out approximately two months before the intended transfer of plants to a permanent place. Most often, this stage is conducted in February, or in the first days of March, so that in the last decade of April, it was possible to move the seedlings to open ground. This is done like this:
- First of all, the seeds should be properly prepared. They need to be placed for 30 minutes in a light solution of potassium permanganate, which will disinfect the seed. Then you need to rinse the seeds and leave them for a while in clear water, so that they swell.
- After that, you can start sowing seeds in containers for seedlings. In the ground you need to make holes, the depth of which can vary from 5 to 7 mm. Between the holes it is important to keep a distance of 2-3 cm. If the containers are divided into sections, then one or two seeds will be enough to place in each of them.
- At the end of the process, cover the containers with film to create the greenhouse effect. It is recommended to install the containers in well-lit rooms, where a high temperature is maintained, approximately +24 ° С. Water the seedlings on the seedlings should be only when the ground dries.
The first shoots can be seen after 7-8 days. At this stage it is already possible to transfer the containers with seedlings to a place with a lower temperature. + 18 ° С will be enough. The best option would be the usual solar window sill. Feeding with organic matter should be carried out after the first two leaves are formed on the plant. Suitable for this purpose humus.
At the stage when the plants form three pairs of leaves, it is necessary to pick a pick and transplant the seedlings into larger containers. At this stage, the plants will need to get more heat again, so the temperature is +20. +25 ° C will need to be observed for about 4 days, after which the containers will be returned to normal mode.
During these days, the roots will have time to settle down, and the seedlings will successfully grow in containers until the moment when it will be planted in open soil or in the greenhouse.
