How to grow garlic by Chinese technology
Not so long ago I learned that the Chinese get very large harvests of garlic. Having found out some features of their technology, I decided to apply it in my garden.
First of all, I chose the driest and well-lit place.
By pulling the twine, I noticed two parallel lines with an interval between them of 80 cm. I dug two grooves with a depth of 20 and a width of 25 cm along these marks. I put humus on the bottom of each such trench, mixed it with the soil removed, while disinfecting it with a weak solution of copper sulfate ( 20 g per 10 liters of water). Then, the soil in the grooves was rammed so that the grooves remained. They and the space between them was covered with plastic wrap, which remained until the time of planting of garlic - we usually do this on October 5-10.
Before planting, I sorted all the cloves in size into four groups. So that the plants would not be affected by pests in the future, he processed the planting material for 2 minutes in salt water (3 tbsp. Of table salt per 4 l of water), and then by short-term dipping in a solution of copper sulfate (0,5 tsp. to 4 liters of water).
After that, he immediately landed the disinfected teeth to a depth of 5 cm, slightly stepping back from the edge of each groove. The result is 2 rows. He kept a distance of 15 between large teeth, slightly smaller - 11, medium - 9 and the smallest - 7 cm.
Due to the fact that we often have frosty winters, we fell asleep with dry leaves. He removed them in the early spring and immediately gently loosened the ground, so as not to damage the germinating shoots inadvertently.
In the future, plants need to be spud - do it twice a season. Land should be raked only from the strip between the rows. As a result, grooves are formed here too, into which it is convenient to pour water during irrigation and to fertilize during feeding. Before hilling, this is done in the grooves formed during the preparation of the bed.
Garlic, grown in this way, it was enough to water once in 10 daysalthough on very hot days - weekly. Fertilizing produced 3 times. In the spring, when the plants released 3 true leaves, he spread 1,5 l of slurry in a bucket of water. This amount for the first and subsequent feeding is enough for 3 square meters. m landings.
The second feeding period came when the leaves reached their maximum size - about 50-60 cm. I applied green fertilizer obtained from the fermentation of a mass of weeds - nettles, daisies, quinoa, woodlice. Nitrofoska added to it (2 tbsp. L. Per 10 liters).
When the plants started laying the teeth (this is the first week of June), I fed them with a full mineral fertilizer: according to 1 tsp. Ammonium nitrate, double superphosphate and potassium chloride on 10 l of water.
Harvest pleased: all the heads were large, and later perfectly stored.
