If a tomato seedling is too much stretched out, it should be fertilized with a growth-controlling drug, for example “Athlete”. A total of 4 treatments are done before the seedlings are planted in a permanent place. The first treatment is done with a solution of 10 liters of water and 1 ampule of "Athlete". Subsequent 3 treatments are carried out with an interval of 3-4 days with a solution of 5 liters of water per vial of solution. After the last treatment, it is recommended to harden the seedlings for 6 days and only then begin planting Robin at a permanent place.

To help the plant survive such weather, it is worthwhile to mulch the beds so that the soil does not dry out, to air the greenhouses well, and if the crop is grown in open ground, arrange a canopy from the sun for a day.

  • Top dressing can be used organic or mineral. In the latter case, gardeners recommend "Izabion" - a biological fertilizer of animal origin. They are fed a tomato Robin only 2 times per season - 1 time 5 days after planting, and 2 times during the formation of the fruit. One weave landings prepare a solution of 20 ml of the drug and 5 liters of water.
