Rules for the care of the "Merry Gnome"

Given the characteristics of the variety, its resistance to low temperatures, diseases, short ripening times and a guaranteed yield of 1.5 kg, you can safely get down to business.

  1. It all starts with the fact that the seeds are disinfected in a weak solution of manganese, hardened in a refrigerator chamber, and saturated with microelements, placed in a "growth stimulator".
  2. To obtain high-quality seedlings, a balanced composition of the soil mixture is important. The substrate should be loose, breathable and moisture-absorbing. It should be free of pests and pathogens. For this, the earth is heated at 80-90 degrees.
  3. Seeds are planted 50 - 55 days before planting in the ground. This happens approximately in early April.
  4. Seedlings dive with the appearance of 1-2 true leaves in separate cups. The mode of lighting and temperature is selected individually, depending on the condition of the plants. Water the seedlings sparingly, trying to maintain soil moisture at 70 - 80%.
  5. Plants are planted in the ground after the termination of spring frosts in May. If the seeds and matured seedlings were hardened in a timely manner, then the plant can be planted in a permanent place 10 days earlier.
  6. Compact tomatoes grow well in thickened plantings, according to the 30 x 30 scheme. Care is reduced to top dressing, watering, timely weeding and loosening of the soil.

Zoned early ripening varieties usually bring little trouble. Caring for them is simple, but how much joy the "Merry Dwarf" delivers when it is on the dining table. It differs markedly from the traditional round tomatoes, consistently capturing everyone's attention.
