The best seeds are selected as follows. It is necessary to dilute 30 g of salt crystals in 1000 ml of water. Seeds are placed there and mixed thoroughly. We remove those that surfaced, that settled at the bottom - we boldly sow. Before planting in the ground, treat with a manganese solution.

If you prefer to buy seedlings, and not grow them yourself, then we recommend doing this not in a spontaneous market, but in a specialized store or gardening facility. Only the strongest and most resistant seedlings are suitable for planting.

Fertilizer

After planting, young peppers need good feeding. Before planting in the ground, throw a handful of wood ash into the hole, add a combined mineral fertilizer or a complex liquid fertilizer specifically for peppers.

During the flowering period, the peppers must be fed regularly. For this, both mineral mixtures and organic substances can be used. For example, you can prepare a solution from 1 bucket of water, 2 tbsp. l. superphosphate and 1 kg of manure. Mix everything and cover, leave for 5 days in a warm and dark room. The liquid needs to be stirred occasionally. You can put a bucket in a greenhouse, that will be enough. In the absence of manure, you can take 0.5 kg of chicken manure. Before adding to the soil, the composition must be diluted with water in a ratio of 1:10. And water with this solution at least once a week.
