Before sowing seeds, carefully read the description on the package. The manufacturer indicates whether the planting material is processed or not. If the treatment has not been carried out, soak the seeds in a weak solution of manganese or Fitoverm for a couple of hours.
If you plan to grow seedlings, pre-prepared soil should be leveled with a rake, make grooves 1.5 cm deep. The optimum temperature in the greenhouse is 13 ℃. Between the rows we leave a distance of 15 cm. After sowing the seeds, water the beds abundantly. After the emergence of the sprouts, the seedlings need to be thinned out so that a distance of 5-7 cm remains between them. Watering is carried out as the soil dries up.

In early June and late May, plants are transplanted into the open ground.
