Tomatoes are planted in open ground at such a time that there are no night frosts. This usually happens from the second decade of May. The place is chosen sunny, leeward. It is better to prepare the soil a week before planting: treat it with copper sulfate, dig it up and apply fertilizer. Only after that, plant the seedlings in previously made holes, watered with warm water. The depth of the hole will depend on the height of the seedlings themselves, but only the soil pot should be deepened. And after 2 weeks, the tomato is spud about 12 cm.

You should immediately take care of the tomato pegs. Watering is carried out 10 days after the plants have taken root a little. It is advisable to do this with a solution of potassium permanganate (2 g / 10 l of water) in order to avoid infection with late blight.
