Tips to reduce water requirements

We recommend mulching the beds
Experience has shown that by covering the ground, e.g. with Hay or straw, which can reduce evaporation by 80%. If you keep the beds evenly moist, an optimal moist microclimate will be created under the mulch. This not only promotes the growth of the plants, but also reduces water consumption enormously.

It is also recommended to always keep the beds moist , even if the bed is not used for a certain period of time
The drying out of the soil leads to a huge decline in the micro- and macro-organisms in the soil, which over time leads to an infertile soil . Tests have shown that the water content in the entire bed remains longer when the entire bed is watered over a longer period of time than when it is only watered selectively. Due to the small volume of the poured areas in contrast to the large dry volume, they dry out more quickly than if the entire volume of the bed is filled with moisture. Similar to heating in an apartment.

If the beds are not in use, we recommend sowing with green manure.

Maintaining an energy level always requires less energy than having to reach it again and again.

The beef tomato 'San Marzano' is a perennial, ancient and traditional variety of tomatoes from Campania in Italy. This particularly tasty late bar tomato variety is ideal for soups, sauces and for the production of tomato paste. The oblong oval red fruits have a low water content and firm flesh. The taste is legendary fruity-aromatic. The disease-tolerant tomato variety is particularly characterized by its extremely robust growth and crop yield.
The San Marzano is a variety that was finally removed from the official catalog of varieties in 1991, replaced by more resistant and easy-care varieties. Thanks to an initiative by the Campania region, the gourmet variety was preserved in home gardens and can therefore be spread more widely.

Subtropic climate (Mediterranean) (e. g. B. Portugal, Spain, Italy)
From February after the last frosts, sow directly into the open air. We recommend pre-cultivation in small bowls from January to April.

Moderate climate (e. g. B. Germany, Switzerland, Poland)
Sow into the frost-free open air in mid-May immediately after the ice saints. We recommend pre-cultivation in small bowls from March to May. The seedlings are separated into the bed from the 3rd Pair of leaves after the cotyledders.

General
The best time to germinate tomatoes is the first warm summer week in spring. After the seeds have germinated at warm temperatures, the seedlings need cool temperatures. We always recommend the pre-culture, for this purpose let the seedlings grow in a small bowl up to the first tomato leaves, then pik into the desired container. After peckering, let the seedlings grow at moderate temperatures until they are planted out as seedlings.
Tomatoes Prefer a sunny Location with a permeable, always moist, nutrient-rich-humus and slightly loamy soil. Prepare the soil for tomatoes with deposited animal manure. Avoid waterlogging.

Additional tips
Meat tomato plants are generally cultivated with 1 or 2 shoots. We recommend a framework for tying the tomato shoots. In order to stimulate the root growth and thus the plant growth of the plants, put the seedlings deeper into the soil, up to the leaf axis of the cotyledons. Sufficient and uniform irrigation has a positive effect on the quality of the fruit. At temperatures below 5 °C, the plant reduces its growth. A regular harvest promotes yield. In order to quickly obtain a fine, crumbly and well-drained soil, an additional incorporation of biochar and primeval rock flour is recommended.

Type of propagation
Spread occurs via seeds. Propagation via cuttings is possible.

Care Plants
The bed in which tomatoes grow should never dry out completely, regular watering is necessary to keep the growth of the plants stable. M It animal manure prepared beds and planting in mixed culture, replaces additional fertilization.

Germination ability of seeds: 8-9 years
