Agrotechnics of sowing.
Stratification required: sowing should be kept warm (approximately +18°C to +22°C) and moist for the first 2-4 weeks.
After this period, sowing must be kept at a cold temperature (from -4°C to + 4°C) for another 4-6 weeks. In this "cold" period, powdering with snow will be a useful technique. Then the temperature is usually kept in the optimal range from -4°C to 0°C. Sowing is kept moist, and melted snow contributes to the destruction of the shell, which is very important for germinating seedlings. After this cooling period, the crop should not be immediately exposed to high temperatures. The most effective temperature is from +5°C to +12°C, even if germination has already begun. The best place for such sowing (even in March, April and May) is open ground, a cold greenhouse or a cold greenhouse.
