Instructions for planting and care
When growing strawberries at home, the soil is taken from your plot from a clean, weed-free bed. If it is very dense, add sand in a ratio of 1:3. If the land is taken from the garden where pumpkin plants grew, then add a little herbal fertilizer. Purchased soils for strawberry seedlings are not suitable.
They are highly saturated with fertilizers, and an excessive concentration of salts is harmful to plants. In such a soil, strawberries may either not rise at all, or the seedlings will quickly die.
Before sowing, the earth is moistened, it should be soaked for 3-4 cm. At home, sowing is carried out in february, along with eggplants and peppers, if there is a heated greenhouse, then sow in march. The seeds are evenly distributed over the soil surface with a match or a toothpick, slightly pressed, but not sprinkled. The sown pots or boxes are covered with glass or a cloth.
You can close it with a film, but you need to make sure that there is always enough oxygen in the tank. The seedling box is placed in a bright, warm place, but not under direct sunlight and not in the dark, otherwise the strawberries will not rise. Shoots appear after 7-10 days.
