The pick is carried out in the period of 2-3 true leaves. Planting in a greenhouse is carried out after the soil has completely warmed up.

It is not recommended to place more than 6-7 plants per square meter.... At the beginning of flowering and at the beginning of the formation of fruits, fertilize with complex mineral fertilizers. Also, in the process of growing bushes, carry out repeated loosening of the earth in the holes, weeding, watering with warm water in the evening.
