Often gardeners are wondering: why should we conduct highly recommended pasynkovaniya? Is not it easier to grow bush, how does it like it? Let him form new lateral stems. Will the bush grow wildly? Well, there will be a lot of flowers. So some inexperienced farmers say. And it was not known to them later why, with abundant flowering, the ovary is formed little, not on all flowers. And if the ovary is formed, the fruits turn out to be plain and small…
It is desirable to immediately decide on what tomatoes are grown for: fruits or for the beauty of beds? For the sake of the fruit? Then all efforts should be aimed at getting a good harvest, not a beautiful hollow bush. The formation of many bushes, especially high ones, is done in 1 stem, although many gardeners form 2-3. Indeterminate and hybrid tomatoes are formed in 1 stalk. What does the expression mean: form in 1 stem? This means that all the side shoots are pinched on the stems. Then on the plant there is only one trunk, and on August it will grow 5-6 brushes of tomatoes. This kind of formation of the bush is the simplest, so the beginning tomato growers will master it.
By the time the tomatoes start to ripen, the lower leaves need to be removed from the stem. Shrubs should look like bare shoots with bunches of fruit and leaves on the very top. In this case, tomatoes are well ventilated, well lit and less sick. Before starting work, remember that it was written on a bag of seeds. If it was said that the variety was indeterminate or was directly indicated on the need to form a plant in 1 stem, you can safely proceed.
As soon as the first flower brush appears, the stepson immediately grows under it. From now on, you need to periodically, about once a week, neatly pinch out all the stepsons that appear. Do not forget to remove the lower leaves as well. For 1 time it is enough to remove no more than 3 leaves or one stepson so that the plant does not get a lot of stress. If you delete more, growth may be delayed, and sometimes you can lose the crop. The leaves need to be broken sideways.
Break them downward, a large piece of peel is removed from the trunk along with the leaf, then stress is attracted again. A plant may even die. Pasynkivat and pinch leaves better in clear and warm weather before lunch, so that until the evening the wound had time to dry. With such pasynkovanii reduces the risk of infection of the plant.
