A very ancient technique for cultivating a vegetable garden and having lots of tomatoes available, without having to buy them anymore.

Tomatoes

The tomato is a true king of the table, always present in summer but also in winter for sauces that accompany pasta and traditional dishes. For those who want to grow them in the garden, there is this ancient technique that allows you to have them in large quantities. Experts reveal the secret , even the smallest vegetable garden will be able to accommodate this crop loved by all, with its bright red colour. Shall we clarify the technique?

Growing tomatoes in the garden: advice from the experts

For the cultivation of tomatoes, first of all, we start from the seed which will be placed in a jar with holes in the base. This is the first step to obtain the first seedlings, in each jar you can place approximately 4 tomato seeds. The jars should then be placed in a closed and sunny place (even better if at the end of winter).

During the first days of spring you will be able to see the first shoots which will give space to the robust seedlings. The nurseryman usually selects the strong and developed ones, and then proceeds with transplanting them into his garden. The ideal position is a place not exposed to direct sun and without significant temperature variations during the night.

Once the plants are ready to be placed in the garden it is time to adjust the soil. It is important to seek advice from experts , so that the soil has adequate nourishment.

Not only that, a correct temperature must be maintained around the roots, perhaps with a mulch made with only natural materials. Every action is important in order to protect the cultivation not only from bacteria and fungi, but also from dangerous temperature variations.

The technique to have many tomatoes available

It being understood that most tomatoes are climbers, the experts’ method for having a good harvest is that of guardians. This allows you to give them a structure to climb on, as well as receive the correct light for growth without them being attached to soil moisture.

Those who grow tomatoes often neglect the passage of the stakes, the pole is not taken care of and consequently the cultivation is not the best. The inadequate and shaky structure does not allow for an excellent quantity of tomatoes but only a plant without its fruit.

Another mistake is placing support after the plants have taken root. It is an important and useless risk, precisely because it damages   the vegetable and its growth.

The correct support structure is certainly made of wood or silicone, so that the tomato can climb without problems. The choice of structure is important for the future of the plant, also adapting it to the type of tomato you want to grow. The development in height is crucial, remembering that the better the structure, the more tomatoes will be able to grow.
