So, the seeds have already been purchased from most gardeners. The eternal question: what can be planted in the early spring in the garden beds, which plants are not afraid of a light frost. What to plant in February or March. What you need and can be planted in the first place, and which cultures can wait for better times. In early spring in February-March, even when the soil has not yet warmed up, you can plant not too few crops - celery, carrots, radishes, parsley, parsnip, peas, chernushka onions. All these cultures tolerate light frost well. But in order for your works not to be in vain, you still need certain knowledge.
Seeds of carrots start to germinate. This makes it possible to plant it in March, and in the Kuban even in February( February windows), making maximum use of the accumulated moisture in the soil. The depth of seeding is 3-4 cm.
The carrots develop underground, therefore, a loose, fertile soil is needed to form a smooth, beautiful root. Before sowing it is necessary to make 1 square.m 2-3 kg of humus, 20-25 g of superphosphate, 10-15 g of potassium salt.
Carrots - cold-resistant plant. It grows well and develops in cool weather, so early harvest can be obtained in May. But this, of course, will be a young carrot, which is usually sold in bunches on the market and which kids love so much.to the content ↑
Parsley seeds germinate at a temperature of 1-5 ° C.Shoots appear in 12-15 days. Parsley also grows well in cool weather. Its shoots are not afraid of frost, and with good snow cover, parsley remains green under the snow in winter.
Parsley sown to a depth of 1-1.5 cm, mulch humus. After the appearance of these leaves are fed diammofoskoy, ammophos, potash fertilizer.to the contents ↑
This is an unpretentious plant. It is cold-resistant, seeds germinate slowly, sprout for 20-24 days. Shoots are not afraid of frost. Drought for parsnip is not a problem either. It can be planted in any soil - it is not particularly picky about it. After the appearance of 2-3 true leaves, they feed.↑ to the content ↑
Radishes are sown when the soil warms to 2-3 ° C.Usually this temperature happens in February or March. For better utilization of the area of the beds and good development of plants, 5 × 5 cm seeds are sown with the help of egg grids. Lattice, as a marker, mark the bed and put the seeds in the grooves obtained in the ground. It turns out quite a wide bed of 6 rows. The length of the beds you choose. Then make a passage 20-30 cm wide( foot length) and repeat the seeding procedure. Dimples with radish seeds fall asleep or sand, or( I do) a mixture of moist earth with vermiculite. Vermiculite loosens the soil well and retains moisture in the ground for longer, which means the fruit will not crack when irregular watering.
Radish shoots tolerate frosts well up to -3 ° С, already mature plants - up to -5 ° С.to the content ↑
Peas tolerate frosts to minus 4 ° C.Seeds germinate at a temperature of 1-2 ° C, and brain varieties at - 4-8 ° C.This plant loves moisture, but does not tolerate high standing groundwater. It is a good predecessor for all cultures. Making a complete mineral fertilizer during sowing increases the sugar content.↑ to the content ↑
Onion seeds( nipper) germinate at a temperature of 2-4 ° C, tolerate light frosts. Onion root system is even better formed in a cool period. And for the formation of bulbs need a temperature of 20-25 ° C.At higher temperatures, onion growth slows.
It is better to soak the onion seeds before sowing in a solution of boric acid( 5 g per 1 liter of water).Then they are dried to flowability and sown. The depth of embedding the nipper is 2-3 cm. Feeding is carried out in the phase of 2 leaves, and in the period when the onion begins to form, it is nitroammophotic, diammophotic.содерж to content ↑
It is better to start growing celery with pre-sowing seed preparation. For faster germination, they are soaked in water for 2-3 days at room temperature. Water change 2-3 times a day.
For celery from sowing to obtain seedlings suitable for planting in the ground, it usually takes 70-80 days.
You can start planting seedlings in favorable weather in the second half of March. Before that, it is watered abundantly to reduce damage to the root system.
Here are some small recommendations and the answer to the question of what to plant in February and March in the early spring in the garden.
And another warning: the introduction of herbicides, fungicides and insecticides on the planting of greenery in early spring is unacceptable
