Instruction
In the autumn, dig a trench about 50 cm deep. Orientation length - west-east. Fold the earth on a nod.
Put a layer of humus on the bottom of the trench with a layer of 20 cm. From above it is necessary to pour loose material such as sawdust or straw so that the earth does not freeze in extreme cold.
When seedlings appear, remove the glass and place the boxes with the seedlings on the sunny windowsill. Do not forget to water well. Cucumbers are very demanding on the amount of moisture during growth. With the increase of shoots, pour into the boxes of the earth. This will lead to a significant increase in the root system.
After the seedlings have 1-2 real leaves, transplant the seedlings into individual cups. Plastic milk bags can be used. Do not forget to make drainage holes in the walls.The cups should also be half filled with earth. Continue to pour soil as cucumber shoots grow.
In late February, early March, free the snow from the prepared trench and remove the covering material. Lay wooden blocks across the trench. On top of them lay a transparent plastic film. From the north side, cover the edge of the film with the ground left. It should be an inclined plane facing south. Due to this, the earth warms faster.
When the soil temperature reaches 17-18 degrees, plant the seedlings in a trench. Cut the planting tanks and plant each bush along with an earthy ball. There are 4-5 plants per square meter. Sprinkle the plants with earth mixed with superphosphate.
Along the sides of the trench, lay a straw or fallen leaves along a layer of 8-10 cm and cover them with earth. Spill well. During decay, these debris will release heat and carbon dioxide, which promotes rapid growth.cucumbers.
On warm days, roll up the film on the north curb. When the threat of frost has passed, the film can be removed altogether and a high trellis can be installed to garter cucumber lashes.
