You can grow a vegetable crop in the open field or under a film.
Although the Orange tomato variety is intended for cultivation in the southern regions, it is cultivated everywhere. It tolerates temperate climates well, because it is usually grown in seedlings. Before sowing, the seeds are treated with a growth stimulant, disinfected in a solution of potassium permanganate. Seed material is hardened, then the seedlings will be strong. Sixty days after the first shoots appear, the seedlings are ready for open ground.
Before planting seedlings, they are tempered by taking them out to the balcony or veranda.
The optimal time for planting in the greenhouse will be the end of April - the beginning of May, for the garden - mid-May. If the threat of spring frosts has not passed, then it is necessary to cover the planted bushes with a film.
Among the main techniques for caring for tomatoes:
- moderate watering two to three times a week;
- feeding with mineral and organic substances every ten to twelve days;
- garter bushes;
- pinching leaving two stems;
- loosening the soil after rains and watering;
- weeding tomato beds.
Since the variety is susceptible to disease, preventive measures must be taken. After planting the seedlings, two weeks later, the bushes are sprayed with a 1% solution of Bordeaux liquid. Repeat the procedure twice with an interval of ten days.
How to make Bordeaux liquid
Those who planted tomatoes know that there are two components in the Bordeaux liquid: a solution of copper sulfate and slaked lime. One percent antifungal mixture is prepared from one hundred grams of copper sulfate and 120 grams of lime milk. Dissolve each ingredient in one liter of hot water separately. Then topped up to five liters each container, and the parts are mixed, having previously filtered.
It will be correct to pour the solution with copper into the limestone. In this case, the liquid is stirred. So that the solution does not burn the leaves of the vegetable, they check the correctness of its concentration - an iron nail is dipped into it. Red plaque on the object means more copper sulfate than it should be. And so lime is added until the sediment disappears.
Use the prepared liquid immediately, treating tomatoes liberally in dry weather. For ten square meters of planting, two liters of solution are enough.
The efficiency of the liquid is high; it stays on the leaves and stems of the plant for a long time. And the Pear Orange variety will be protected from pathogenic fungi and viruses.
