A good seedling should be healthy, squat, unstretched , with strong fibrous roots and unrooted . It can be obtained on a strong, humus soil, with good lighting, proper heat and food regime, with moderate but sufficient watering and systematic feeding with a slurry solution (one part of the slurry to 6 parts of water), urine (1:10), bird droppings (1:16) with the addition of 30 grams of superphosphate to the watering can.

In order for a seedling to take root, it is necessary, firstly, to grow it in earthen pots, paper cups or cans, and secondly, to ensure that it does not stand too close to each other, does not shade one another, does not oppress, does not stretch out of for lack of light. In addition, before planting, the seedlings should receive hardening, for which 3 days before it is left in the open air, not only during the day, but at night. In cases where early seedlings of tomatoes, cucumbers and other plants are planted under the hood or under the temporary protection film, such hardening is not needed. The most correct when the seedlings from the place of production enters the garden on the day of its selection, in the afternoon.

The best time to land is evening. During the night, seedlings recover and   not sick a single day.

The seedlings of early cabbage should be ready by early April, and the seedlings of late cabbage should be ready by the middle of this month. Seedlings of celery, leek and sweet varieties of onions can be planted in early May.
