In order to get the first harvest of cucumbers as early as possible, cucumbers are planted in a greenhouse. It is this approach to growing cucumbers that can provide the earliest harvest.
For growing cucumbers in the greenhouse, only self-pollinated varieties can be used.
- The technology of growing healthy seedlings of cucumbers includes strict adherence to the temperature regime.
- From sowing seeds to emergence of seedlings in a room with seedlings, it is necessary to maintain a temperature of 22-27 ° C.
- The next 4-5 days, the temperature is slightly reduced to 16-18 ° C.
- In the remaining period, on sunny days, they maintain about 20 ° C, and on cloudy 17-18 ° C.
- At night, 13-15 ° C is sufficient.
When the seedlings turn 25-27, the next stage begins - planting cucumbers in a greenhouse.
Planting seedlings in a greenhouse.
- In the previously prepared beds, holes are made, which are filled with warm water.
- In the resulting grooves, carefully, so as not to damage the roots, the seedling is transferred.
- The distance between the bushes in a row is 30 cm, and between the rows themselves 90 cm.
- Seedlings of cucumbers are planted together with a clod of earth and deepened, to the same depth as it was in the cup.
- Since the hypocotal knee is extremely sensitive to root rot, it should therefore not be covered with earth.
- After planting cucumbers in a greenhouse, they are watered under the root with warm water of at least 23 degrees.
- A rope is pulled from the root of the plants to the top of the greenhouse, which will allow the cucumbers to "climb" upwards. Sometimes a whole system of rope weaves or a special mesh is used.
