Good seedlings should be healthy, squat, non-stretched , with strong pomaceous roots and unsweetened . It can be obtained on strong, humus soil, with good lighting, proper heat and food regimen, with moderate but sufficient watering and systematic feeding of the slurry solution (one part of the slurry in 6 parts of water), urine (1:10), bird droppings (1:16) with addition of 30 grams of superphosphate to the watering can.

In order to grow well, it is necessary, first, to grow it in earthenware pots, paper cups or cans, and secondly, to make sure that it does not stand too close to each other, does not obscure, do not oppress, for lack of light. In addition, before planting, the seedlings must be hardened, for which they leave it 3 days before under the open sky not only during the day, but also at night. In cases where early seedlings of tomatoes, cucumbers and other plants are planted under the hood or under a film temporary protection, such hardening is not needed. The most correct, when the seedling from the production site enters the garden on the day of sampling, in the afternoon hours.

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

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

Seedlings of tomatoes should be at the end of the last spring frosts (the third decade of April - the first decade of May). To determine the seeding time for seedlings, you need to count back from the end of frost 40-50 days and add 6-8 days, during which shoots appear.
