Agricultural technology.
It is cold-resistant, photophilous enough. It grows well in a sunny area with loose fertile soil. Seeds are sown in April-May in open ground or before winter. Seedlings are thinned out, maintaining a distance between plants of 10-20 cm.
Vigorous development and abundant flowering can be obtained by feeding plants with organic and complete mineral fertilizers, starting 7-10 days after thinning and continuing at intervals of 10-14 days.
