Pick of tomatoes in 2019 according to the lunar calendar

Why carry out the procedure

Tatyana Orlova (candidate of agricultural sciences):

Diving of tomatoes provides the rules The development and growth of the root system.

The cultivation of tomato seedlings (and not only tomato) with picking allows you to save the useful area of ​​the protected soil in the first stages of seedling cultivation. The seeds are sown initially thickened, so that they can be sown after 3-4 weeks.

Technically, the process consists of pinching the central root, so that the branching of the root system is further enhanced. At the same time, plants are transplanted into more spacious containers.

Picking allows you to select the strongest and most promising seedlings, to provide favorable conditions for it. In addition, transplantation becomes an effective treatment when pathogens appear in the soil.

For many gardeners, diving tomatoes means simply transplanting them from a common tray into separate pots without shortening the root.

The thing is that at an early stage of growth (within a few weeks after germination ) The root system of tomatoes is still very tender. When transplanting, the root tip is damaged in any case and pinching occurs on its own. Targeted shortening in this situation can only harm the plant.

Overgrown seedlings are most often dived with pinching the root to slow down the growth of the upper part and strengthen the lower.

Description of technology

Usually, seedlings are dived at the stage of 2-3 real leaflets (approximately 15-20 days after germination). A few hours before transplanting, the plants are watered with warm water to soften the ground and avoid excessive damage to the roots.

Prepare separate containers: plastic cups, small flower pots, peat pots or tablets. If there is a shortage of individual containers, you can use more spacious trays, planting tomatoes in them at a greater distance. one and a half weeks after germination; 8-10 cm – for more adult seedlings).

  • Young plants with delicate roots are carefully removed from the tray with an earthen lump using a wooden stick or spatula.They are transplanted, trying not to destroy the earthen lump.
  • When diving more adult seedlings (or overgrown), they pinch off the root tip or shorten with nail scissors.

The soil mixture for transplantation is prepared from steamed turf land, peat and rotted compost, if desired, add complex mineral fertilizers. At the end, the seedlings are watered under the root with warm water or a solution of manganese.

Tatyana Orlova (candidate of agricultural sciences):

In the first 5-7 days after picking seedlings do not expose to bright sunshine, keep out in diffused light or even shade it.

Tomatoes love picking: after transplanting they grow well and become strong. Therefore, two to three weeks after the first procedure, you can conduct the second (using the same technology, but in large containers).

Tatyana Orlova (candidate of agricultural sciences):

It is most rational to use, for growing pickled seedlings, not glasses, but special cassettes with cells. There are different options for cassettes with different numbers and cell diameters. For ordinary amateur gardeners, cassettes with 6 cells with a diameter of 5-6 cm are suitable.Cassettes have a rectangular shape, which allows more efficient use of the area of ​​the window sill or mini-greenhouses. In addition, seedlings in cassettes are easier to carry.

And if the sowing was carried out in the first half of February, then the picking dates for tomatoes fall in the first half of March, favorable days in this period: 10, 1, 12. Number.

If the seeds were sown in early March – the first pick is carried out in the second or third decade. Favorable days for this will be the 16th and 19th.
