Video: Secrets Of Growing Seedlings. Good Advice. Video
Hello dear gardeners, gardeners and flower growers. Our main work with you is that we grow seedlings, that is, we multiply plants in order to get a good harvest later, be it vegetable products, be it flower products, or simply grow some ornamental shrubs and trees. So all this work is in small parts, and they are always very important.
Let me remind you now that you should always keep in mind, what you should not forget, and remember always when you grow plants during this period.
To begin with, you bought the seeds. Take it right away, start a notebook, a weekly, an ordinary general notebook, where you write down what seeds, varieties, hybrids, where you bought it, even the price. And side by side, you can set the price in euros or in dollars, so that in the future you will be surprised at the price differences. This is the first thing that any gardener, gardener and florist must have. Why? Because you are growing plants. Like. If you want to buy more seeds - don't remember where you bought it, don't remember the name. And they looked into the notebook - everything became clear. So this is a must.
Many of you are interested in garden calendars. Some of you adhere to these calendars very tightly, but I believe these calendars are needed for those who are not very collected. Why? Because buy five of these calendars, and for any day you will find yourself a day off, or, conversely, you will find yourself a job. So all these calendars are lying, and I believe you should only stick to new and full moons. For example, I stick to one day before and after the new moon and full moon, these days I do nothing. Yes, you yourself will not want to do anything, because these days, as a rule, you feel bad.
The next thing we should have are some tags. It can be bought plastic, you can simply cut it from containers made of aluminum or plastic. Cut it and hang it for each plant. It is inconvenient to hang it on a plant - you can always stick it into the soil near the plant you are planting. It is better to make signatures with a simple pencil.
Following. We have different soils in all areas, and when we plant some crops, we are surprised: “What is it ?! One grows, while the other does not. " First of all, we check the acidity of the soil with litmus tests. They are sold at garden centers. After reading the instructions, we can always very simply and quickly determine the acidity of the soil on which our site is located, and correct it by adding deoxidizing materials.
How can we change nutrition? Fertilization, of course. But that will be later. And for seedlings, we now need a good land.
If you bought one peat - pillows are on sale, soft, loose, warm - then the plants grow poorly. It is imperative to make it heavier. Please buy river sand, eventually perlite, maybe you will get clay somewhere, dry the clay. Not quite dry, but slightly damp. And rubbing into small crumbs with your hands, add to this peat. Weight, tie these parts.
What's next? If you are planting seedlings in small containers, then you can make the drainage layer very, very small, and be sure not to forget about the drainage plants, otherwise your root system will die.
But if you do not have small containers, and want to grow seedlings in such containers, then you will have to fill in the drainage material halfway. Of course, this is very unprofitable, and think about it right away.
You must definitely have fungicides. These are remedies for diseases that can save your plant from blackleg. Perlite, vermiculite, some pebbles, fine gravel can serve as drainage material, but they must be present.
Sometimes, when we sow seeds, and are forced to maintain soil moisture so that our seeds do not suffer in the same leveled conditions, very often you can hear the following advice-recommendation: "Cover your plantings with glass." But at the same time, look once or twice a day, shake off and wipe off the dew drops that have formed on this glass or polyethylene. I advise you to just put these pots in a plastic bag, so tie them up at the top. Here you are, a paper clip from under the bread. Bread is now sold in packages. And such gimmicks. Wonderful. They pressed it, and you got such a dome. All. No dew will fall on the plant. This means that even the smallest, small seedlings, for example, like those of strawberries … After all, very tiny seedlings. Literally a drop or two if it falls on these seedlings, moreover,that its weight can crush, and, among other things, there will be excess moisture near the seeds, which will destroy the root system. So be sure. Have micronutrients.
They will help you and save your plant if something is missing. For example, you grow tomatoes. Here you have a seedling with two tiny leaves, blue-purple stems. You all wonder: “What happened? Why is it such an unnatural color? " There is simply not enough phosphorus. You took trace elements, which contain a large amount of phosphorus, and watered it. Fed 1-2 times - your plants leveled off, began to develop well and actively. Here you are, literally one trace element, and of a mineral origin. So do not be afraid to use mineral fertilizers when growing seedlings.
Necessarily for diseases fungicides, either in tablets now, or in liquids, but you must have these drugs.
And, of course, fertilizers and stimulants of growth and root formation, if the plants start to grow tight.
