As to cultivate the tomatoes in the balcony
What is there of better whether to go on the balcony of proper house and to pick up the tomatoes?
Here are the passages to be done if we want to have our pomodis bio in the balcony:
- all it takes is taking a vase of dimensions I mediate / great, better if of crock because it maintains the correct degree of damp, the vases in plastics in the summer they excessively heat the roots and in winter they expose the plants to the risk cold, it also needs to buy the relative saucer to contain the water in excess when we sprinkle and that it will serve to the plant as reserve of water in the warmest days;
- to give better him some seedlings of tomatoes if type “pachino”, “datterino”, “ciliegino”, but also the less known ones “spoon”, “cocktail”, “small fry” or also the “bourgeois prince” (they are also found in the shops of hobbistica or in the specialized shops but to always make sure that the plants are still green and fresh), the kinds of tomatoes that we have pointed out above they do of the small tomatoes and for them nature they are lent better than the others to the cultivation in vase;
- to buy some soil.
It is necessary to take the vase, holding under the vase the relative saucer, we will put in the fund some soil and then we will abandon our seedlings of tomato, a seedling for vase, and we will put other soil around the seedlings themselves.
Made this operation we can put the seedlings in the balcony and we will slightly water her.
The ideal position for the tomatoes is a sunny balcony.
The tomato is a seasonal plant to indicatively plant in March, if the cold is ended.
Toward September October the plants of tomato won’t give fruits anymore and they will have the tendency to dry up, in fact the plant of tomato doesn’t withstand the autumn or winter climates, the vases for them we can preserve for planting new seedlings in March of the following year.
Other plants that can be planted in vase and to which serves the sun they are the strawberries, the peperoncinis, the eggplants and the cucumbers, all are well in a sunny balcony.
If you have better instead a non sunny balcony plant in vase lies, basil, melissa, salad, all plants with the leaves that have a preference for the shade.
Attention finally if you have in the house small children because the pomodorinis could have put in mouth from them, his/her children are attracted by all of this that is small, and to risk the suffocation; in this case to prefer a type of tomatoes I mediate as the smooth round tomato to cluster.
