Prepare the soil
So that the lady potato succeeds well, you need to take care of the soil in advance .It is better to prepare the beds in the fall, so that the earth receives nutrients and becomes as fertile as possible.

They can be selected from last year’s crop or purchased in a store. Before planting them, you need to inspect the material for diseases and dents – the potato should be smooth and not have visible damage.
Selected tubers must be processed with potassium permanganate. For this, a solution of 10 crystals per liter of water is made. The tubers are allowed to dry, put in boxes and put into the light in warm weather (at least 10 degrees). The grown tubers with sprouts that have appeared are quite ready for planting in the ground.

- dig holes with a depth of at least 20 cm: the distance between them should be 50-60 cm so that the plants are not crowded;

- all seedlings need to be densely covered with soil and leveled with a rake;
- it is important to loosen the soil to ensure good breathability in the holes.
