There are several ways of tying greenhouse cucumbers and tomatoes. Growing such crops in greenhouse conditions is convenient in that care for them is simplified. Due to the fact that a constant temperature regime is maintained in the greenhouse, the crop ripens faster.
The garter of plants is necessary so that under the weight of the crop the plant does not lean to the ground and its fruits do not rot. To garter young plants will need a rope with an ultraviolet protective additive from exposure to sunlight. Sharp scissors are also needed.

Consider several ways to garter young cucumbers and tomatoes growing in the greenhouse.
Garter with an
loop It is necessary to measure the length of the rope from the greenhouse beam to the soil surface. Further around the plant they wind a rope and tie it on a knot, the loop is not tightened tightly, leaving the distance from the knot to the central shoot of the bush.
Since in the process of development the central shoot of the plant thickens, the distance between the node and the central stem should be 2-3 cm.
The second end of the rope is tied to the greenhouse. Then the young stepchildren are removed, and the plant is wrapped with a rope counterclockwise. It is necessary to wind all the interstices of the plant.

You can tie up plants with "eight", for this wrap every second internode.
Garter using burying thread
With this method of garter, the rope length is measured 10 cm longer than the distance from the greenhouse beam to the soil. With the help of a peg near the plant you need to make a hole. The rope is tied to the beam of the greenhouse on a strong knot, and the free end of the rope is immersed in the hole and buried. It turns out strongly stretched vertical rope, and therefore the cucumber very firmly wraps around the rope. Tomato tie up, twisting his rope counterclockwise.
It is also necessary to remove all young shoots of plants, otherwise they will be inconvenient to remove them after the garter.
The garter with the tightened loop
The garter with the tight loop is that the rope is tied around the central shoot of the plant. It is necessary to tie a knot so that the loop expands as the bush grows. To do this, they tie such a knot, as in the case of strapping with a usual loop, but in the resulting hole, thread the free end of the rope and tighten the knot. The free end of the rope will not allow it to transfer the central shoot of the bush, and as the culture grows, the knot will expand.
