. Galina Kizima's method.
. Perhaps the best-known non-standard method of growing tomato seedlings in a city apartment is the Galina Kizima method. The basis is the minimum possible use of the soil and the complete saving of space during the germination of tomato seeds. The so-called "swaddling" is quite effective, this method can be used to grow other vegetables.
Sprouting seeds can occur without soil, the process proceeds perfectly on toilet paper.
To do this, several layers of regular toilet paper are spread on polyethylene and moistened with a spray bottle. On it lay the previously soaked tomato seeds, the distance between each seed should be at least 1 cm, from the edge indent by 2 cm. After the seeds are covered with several layers of paper and also moisten it.
Preparation of paper tape for seeds Sowing seeds on paper tape Folding seed tape Distributing seed tapes Water filling seeds Ready sprouts for planting
Next, get the ribbons with seeds, curled up with curls, put the sheets, and then put the pieces, put the patterns, put the pieces, put the sheets, for planting
.bright and warm place. After the seedlings appear and the plants get a little stronger, they will have to be “transplanted” into separate diapers.
For this, pieces of square-sized polyethylene with a side of 20 cm are used. Ground is poured into the center of the square, and a seedling is placed in it so that all the leaves are above the polyethylene. After turning the bottom edge, and then the side so as to get a tight roll. The soil before this is plentifully watered, and then not moistened for 10-14 days.
The seedlings grown by this method do not require picks, the stems are strong with a lot of leaves, but the rhizome develops poorly. After the appearance of the third pair of these leaves, tomato seedlings are planted in a greenhouse.
Transplant plants by transfer, with the hole being as large as an earthen clod around a rhizome. Further cultivation is carried out completely without moisture.
Before planting, it is necessary to cut off several lower leaves, and lay out the seedlings with the tops strictly to the north. Before that, a glass of wood ash and a pinch of potassium permanganate are put into each prepared well, everyone is poured with a bucket( !) Of water, and only when the water is absorbed do they start planting plants.
How to grow tomatoes under the covering material in the greenhouse or ground

Grains are sprinkled with a layer of soil, watered with warm water and covered with .Agrofibre or polyethylene can be used as a covering material. In this way, a greenhouse effect is created, in which the soaked grains sprout much earlier.
Seeding of seeds is carried out at a sufficient distance from each other, since transplantation is not performed with this method.

They began to use it because of the lack of a seat for grown seedlings .In a bucket they collect a mixture of soil from the plot and compost, plant a tomato sprout, and water it plentifully. During the entire period of growth before fruiting, as it dries, the soil is periodically watered, and during the formation of the ovary, watering is increased. The method allows to significantly extend the fruiting period of any variety, while growing vegetables is possible not only in the greenhouse, but also on the balconies and loggias.
There is an officially registered method, for which initially prepared buckets with soil mixture are used. It is worth noting that according to the recommendations, the container should be dug into the soil by 25-30 cm.
