Features of growing

In open ground, you can grow vegetables in the southern regions of the country. If spring frosts are planned, then planting is better covered with a film. When growing in seedlings, plants are planted in the ground in mid-May. By this time, plants should have at least 4 leaves, and their height should vary from 15 to 20 cm.
For this hybrid, nutrient soils are needed. Therefore, in the fall it is advisable to introduce organic fertilizers into the soil. We apply mineral fertilizers to the soil only if its composition is known. Garden crops do not grow well on soils with a high nitrogen content.
