Eggplants or blue are considered the favorite vegetables of southerners. There are many ways to prepare eggplants, but first you need to grow them, and this is not an easy task.
In order to get a good harvest of blue ones in the summer, you need to know how to plant eggplants, because a lot depends on it - and germination, and productivity, and the general condition of the bush. Eggplants are almost always first grown for seedlings, and then planted in the soil. To do this, eggplant seeds are germinated on wet gauze for 1-2 days, and then planted in a prepared box with soil or in separate cups with soil. When the bushes get stronger and the ground warms up enough, you can start preparing the soil.
It is important to choose the right place for planting the eggplant. It should be sunny and the soil should be well fertilized, light and free-flowing. To do this, it is mixed with peat, humus, sawdust and other fertilizers. The place for the eggplants should be carefully dug up so that the soil there acquires airiness.
In the prepared area, make holes (at a distance of about 35-40 cm from each other) and plant an eggplant bush in each. It is necessary to deepen the bush up to the first pair of true leaves. You can also use pegs to tie up the plant later if necessary. Eggplant bushes are very delicate, the leaves break off easily, so planting seedlings in the ground requires special delicacy.
After planting, the bushes may wilt a little, but you should not flood them with water, such a painful condition occurs due to the adaptation and strengthening of the root system.
