In the greenhouse, you can get a wonderful crop of aubergines not only in the southern regions, but also in the middle latitudes.
It is important to plant seeds on seedlings in time, to properly form plants and take care of them.
Cultivation of aubergines begins with sowing seeds on seedlings. This can be done from the end of January to the 10th of March. If the seeds are planted aubergines later, the fruit does not have time to ripen.
If you planted this vegetable early, after 30-40 daysFrom the moment of shoots, it is necessary to transplant each plant from a common container into a separate one. If you are conducting initial works in March, plant seedlings immediately into separate pots.
With the onset of heat eggplants are taken to the cottage. In the greenhouse of polycarbonate seedlings of eggplant are planted already on April 25-30, in the glazed unheated - May 10-15, under the film - May 15-25.
Cultivation of aubergines is a fascinating process,It's nice to see how a small sprout eventually turns into a powerful bush. To give him an excellent harvest, water, sometimes feed the plant, let the air roots by loosening. Do not forget to ventilate the greenhouse, as eggplants do not like high humidity.
It is important to properly form them. If the bush is strong, when it grows to 30 cm in height, pinch the top. This will give an opportunity to develop lateral shoots, on which fruits are formed.
A weak plant is formed differently. Side stepsons break off or cut off, leaving a stump in 7 mm. You can not remove one strong stepchild, then the plant will have 2 stems. You can also form one, removing all the stepsons. A weak plant is fed with infusion of mullein and the first flowers are removed. This will enable the bush to grow stronger and subsequently give a good harvest.
