    Spring frosts can be dangerous not only for seedlings and planted seedlings of heat-loving crops (tomatoes, cucumbers, etc.), but also for cold-resistant crops (cabbage, onions, etc.), so I carefully examine the plants during this period.
    If the lower leaves of white cabbage are damaged, then I water and feed at the same time with a solution of urea at the rate of 15 g per 10 liters of water, spending this solution on 5 plants. Then I loosen the soil and spud.
    If the leaves of tomatoes are damaged, then I feed them with superphosphate at the rate of 25 g per 10 liters of water.
    I spray other plants that have fallen under frost with Epin (1 ampoule per 5 liters of water) until the leaves and stems are completely wet.

    Planted tomatoes, and then an unexpected frost. They froze very much, the leaves turned black, and now a bunch of stepsons have grown. What to do with them next?

      Hardened seedlings of tomatoes are planted in the soil when it warms up to 10-15 °, and air - up to 14-15 °. In cold (10 ° and below) soil can not be planted.
      In severely frostbitten plants, all affected leaves and stems are removed (to the healthy part). Then they are watered with a solution of an antistressant drug, give root dressing with nitrogen fertilizers with potassium humate. The result should be a massive appearance of stepsons from sleeping kidneys.

      As a rule, during freezing, the growth point first dies, and the main stem is formed from the strong stepson closest to the top. How many should they be left at all? Superdeterminant varieties that form 2-3 inflorescences on the main stem do not stepson. The determinants that stop growing after laying the 4-6th inflorescence are left 2-3, rarely 4 stepson, and indeterminate -1, a maximum of 2. All "excess" is removed.
