Useful tips for the care of sweet peppers in the Urals

  • Pepper loves warmth and good lighting, so it is better for novice gardeners to grow it in a greenhouse or on warm beds. In the Urals, the summer is short and later, and the pepper may not even have time to ripen unpretentious varieties.
  • When grown by seedlings, seeds are sown in February-March. In May, flowers appear on the plant. In the southern regions they are usually cut off, but in the Urals this is not worth doing: there is a risk that the fruits will not have time to ripen. It is better to take a cotton swab or a thin brush and re-pollinate flowers. So the fruit will fasten faster.
  • It is advisable to plant seedlings or seeds in open ground, when the average daily temperature of at least 13-15 ° C is established outside. And with the threat of frosts, beds should be covered with spunbond.
  • Sweet pepper responds well to fertilizing with organic fertilizers, therefore, before planting, compost or humus at the rate of 3-4 kg / sq.
  • To increase the endurance of the peppers and help them "survive" in the difficult weather conditions of the Urals, during the growing season it is necessary to spray the plants with a mixture of Appin and Zircon every 2 weeks (1 ampoule of each substance is diluted in 10 liters of water).
  • In order for the short summer of the Urals to have time to collect the maximum yield, the fruits of the pepper must be removed a little underripe. So you will give the opportunity to quickly go to the growth of the recently formed small peppers.

Choose the right varieties - and then even in a cold region you will be able to harvest a good crop of sweet peppers. Once you have tasted your own hand-grown fruit, you no longer want to buy vegetables at the store. After all, pepper from your own site is much tastier!
