You can start growing sweet pepper seedlings at the end of February. Before planting the seeds, they are pre-soaked in a special growth stimulator or in an ordinary solution of potassium permanganate.
As for the soil, a light peat soil is suitable, which can be mixed with garden soil in equal proportions.
Growing pepper seedlings
Seeds must be planted in soil that has been previously watered with warm water and a weak solution of potassium permanganate. After that, the pepper seeds should be sprinkled with a layer of soil 0.5 cm.
Remember that the seedlings should be kept in a warm place at all times, and the box can be covered with plastic wrap. Remember to check your crops daily and be careful not to dry out the soil.
If everything is done correctly, then the first shoots will appear in 10 days. But the film needs to be removed only when the seedlings are completely aligned.
Seedlings must be watered with warm, settled water. To feed sweet pepper seedlings, use a solution of mineral fertilizers.
By the way, if you want to end up with a seedling with a developed root system, use sour cream or kefir sachets. In them, the roots are not deformed during the growth of the seedlings.
Outdoor cultivation of sweet peppers can be started as early as early May. True, there is a great risk of spring night frosts. For reassurance, first prepare agrofibre, which can be used to cover plants in winter.
By the way, before planting seedlings, treat the beds with trichodermin to destroy the spores of pathogenic fungi.
