The care includes a number of procedures:

  • Watering. It is carried out as necessary. To do this, check the condition of the soil: it is better not to allow overmoistening. The average frequency of watering is once a week. If tomatoes are grown in the open field, in the rainy season, watering is completely stopped. During severe droughts, their number is increased to 2-3 times a week. For irrigation use only warm, standing water.
  • Loosening the soil. The purpose of the procedure is to enrich the soil with oxygen and stimulate the growth of the bush. It is carried out after the appearance of a thick crust on the surface of the earth. Most often this happens after heavy rains.
  • Tying up. Although the bushes are low, it is better to tie them to a wooden or iron support. This will allow the seedlings to take root well. Stakes are hammered at a distance of 10-15 cm from the stem to a depth of about 35 cm.
  • Top dressing. Usually, feeding is carried out three times per season, but sometimes it is necessary to do them every 2 weeks. As a fertilizer, the soil is fed with a complex mixture of organic and mineral substances. The main thing is that the nitrogen concentration is low. Most often, ammonium nitrate, mullein, superphosphate, bird droppings, potassium chloride are used. When the tomatoes bloom, be sure to introduce root top dressing from boron solution.

It is important to remove weeds on time: they negatively affect the growth of the plant and stop it. It is also important to timely harvest. During the ripening period, you need to inspect the bushes daily and immediately collect ripe vegetables.
