To obtain seedlings, seeds are sown in winter, early spring or autumn in special boxes without embedding (only slightly rolled on the soil surface).
It is necessary to maintain constant humidity and light, and the germination temperature is maintained within + 20 + 22 ° С.
Shoots appear after 1-2 weeks. Further, the humidity of the substrate and the temperature are reduced to +18 + 20°C (temperatures above +25°C and below +10°C should be strictly avoided during the development of seedlings).
Seedlings are planted in the ground in a permanent place when the threat of spring frosts has passed, keeping a distance (for group plantings) of 30-40 cm.
In the process of growing, regular watering, loosening, weeding of plots are carried out, and top dressing is also periodically performed.
