Growing tomatoes at home, that is, in small boxes and pots on the balcony or even on the windowsill, has recently become one of the most popular types of "indoor" gardening. And to get a truly rich harvest, simple secrets of growing tomatoes in indoor conditions will help.
Of course, not all varieties of tomatoes are suitable for cultivation in closed ground and in a rather limited space due to the impressive size of the bush. The best options for home growing are compact varieties of this crop, for example, Linda, Balconnoe Miracle, De Barao, White filling. This list can be continued for a very long time, and in almost every seed store there is a considerable number of such varieties of tomatoes.
In addition, special attention should be paid to the placement of the "vegetable garden". Tomatoes are extremely warm and sun-loving plants, so their pots are best placed on windows or balconies that face south, which means they receive the most sunlight. Another extremely important condition for the normal development of plants is the correct temperature regime. The maximum yield of tomatoes can be obtained when grown at a temperature of 20-25 degrees. It is also worth considering that this culture feels best in weakly acidic loamy or sandy loam soils. These are, perhaps, the main secrets of growing tomatoes, taking into account which you can get a good harvest from your mini-garden.
