Tomatoes are sown for seedlings in the first half of March. Before planting, it is recommended to soak the seed in a growth stimulator. Disinfection is not required, all the necessary manipulations of the seeds go through before sale. Germination is good, not less than 85%.

The plantings are covered with foil and placed in a warm place. After germination, the containers are moved to bright light. From time to time, the containers are rotated so that the plants develop evenly. Watering is best done from a spray bottle or a fine-mesh watering can; warm, settled water is used.

The wells are spilled with a hot solution of potassium permanganate, after planting, the plants are tied to a support. The bushes are not too tall, so stakes or metal rods can be used as props. Watering should not be too frequent (once every 6 days), but abundant enough. During the season, tomatoes are fed 3-4 times with liquid complex fertilizer.
