Every year I hope to grow my vegetables and herbs. so that strong young plants can sprout from the seeds. There are some little things to consider when doing cultivation. Now, you will learn about the best tips for successful cultivation.
The Right Time
If the spring sun first appears in mid-February, then we will start growing vegetables and herbs. Your fingers itchy fingers and holding back looks impossible. But it’s still too early! From mid-February to the end of February, you can choose only the things that are chilies,
pepper, and eggplant.
They have a long germination time and may give each one a month’s priority. You should be patient with tomato, zucchini, or other flower seeds until mid / end of March. You can plant them only on the balcony or in the garden towards the end of May (after the Ice Saints). If they stand in the apartment for months due to early planting, the sprouts are not good at all. They become tall, thin, and lime.
Use Potting Soil
In cultivated soil, there are no residues from other plants, no microorganisms, or fungal retrieval. It has no fertilizer and is therefore ideal for tender roots. As soon as you have the clay of the pot in your hand, you will see how beautifully it is loose and looking.
It is best to avoid the use of garden soil or compost. By using pottery, you will increase the chances that the seed will grow well and grow well in the form of a plant. If you are still having problems with hard clay, here are some very effective ways on how to soften hard clay.
As long as the seeds are lying in the potting soil and poured on it, you don’t have to dry them anymore. Otherwise, the germination process will completely stop. Watering is a great help in showering. A soft jet of water does not wash the seeds to the surface – everything stays in place.
This way, you protect yourself from repeated watering and your crop may not dry out. As soon as the plants appear out of the ground, just remove the foil. If there is mold in the middle, it is not so bad. To prevent it from spreading further, air the seed and remove the film.
Over time, I’ve come to realize that it works best in shallow bowls. They offer enough space for seeds and at the same time you do not need so much soil. You can sow it in practical rows. That way, you can have a variety of vegetables in one seed tray The bowls fit perfectly on a window sill and do not take up much space in the apartment.
A Bright & Warm Place
Light and warmth are essential for seed germination. Unfortunately, apartments often have too much heat and too little light. It’s bright on the window score, but if the heater is running down, it’s not a good place for plants.
You need to find a place in the apartment that makes the ideal conditions possible. If there is only space on the floor (such as if you have floor-to-ceiling windows or balcony doors), you can place the cups there. They grow on inverted cardboard boxes and the floor does not get wet.

Don’t Sow Too Closely
Sowing is not necessary for gross motor skilled people. The seed quickly gets too close to a place or row. And such dense sowing is not good, because then the lamps quickly compete for light, space and some nutrients. Also, they often get better. Therefore, sow the seeds carefully and at the recommended intervals – or spoil at a good time. The plants will thank you and reward you for the harvest.
So that you can take a look and find out exactly which pot contains the vegetables, I would suggest labeling you sowing. To do this, I cut a cup of yogurt and noted the date of sowing and the varieties in it. But you can also buy lab labels to write the most important information on them and use a pencil (which stays the best).
Be Sure to Prick
After around 30 days (depending on the variety) the seeds have sprouted in small plants. In order for them to become compact, formal young plants, the filtering stage (also called single out) is very important. If you have already sown seeds in individual pots, you still have to keep them. From now on, Ankara wants a different soil. Potting soil does not provide them with nutrients, but sprouts need them to grow big and strong. So, turn them into rich organic vegetable soils.
Young plants are hardened from mid/late April when the first light, sunny days. On a hot day, they can enjoy some fresh air. Yet it should not be in direct sunlight, but in a dark place protected from the wind. Bring it back at night. Strictness is necessary so that the plants are accustomed to external conditions (sun, wind, rain) and do not get an external shock. If the plant is not hardened, it will stop germinating or immediately after planting. Will die Around mid-May, when there is no risk of night blight, you can finally move your plants to a bed or balcony.
