WATERING YOUNG SEEDLINGS + SIDERATES
I want to share with readers a simple and effective way of watering young seedlings, which I came up with several years ago. Since our sandy soil dries very quickly after watering, before my trees constantly lacked moisture and they developed extremely slowly. They were especially tight in the dry summer months with thirty degrees of heat.
You don’t run into the dacha much, I get there once a week and I don’t know what to grab. I wanted the irrigation that I produced to be as effective as possible. In addition, as the tree grew, the near-stem circle expanded, and I simply could not afford to pour water into it.
Now, after planting a new seedling, I proceed as follows. Along the edges of the landing pit, I dig annular grooves half a spade of shovels. In them I sow the seeds of white mustard. This one-year siderat is very unpretentious. Its root system is deep, pivotal, can go to a depth of three meters. Due to this, mustard makes the soil airy and permeable.
In the first year of planting, I pour water into the trunk circle, which is still small in size.
Next spring, I dig a new ring right next to last year, sow the seeds already in it, and water the trees in the first trench. The soil in it has become very loose thanks to the powerful mustard root system that has decayed during the winter, moisture goes deep, goes directly to the roots of the trees.
So, as the tree grows up to the moment it enters the fruiting season, I prepare new watering grooves each spring, gradually increasing the diameter of the ring. Sow mustard in them 2-3 times per season. I cut off the green mass before flowering and put it in the trunk circle.
Sometimes I leave siderat to grow longer and collect seeds from it. With this technique, the earth around the tree becomes fertile, loose and light. I fill the old grooves with kitchen waste and plant debris from the garden, and I fill up with soil on top.
Since I began to use this method of watering, new seedlings began to develop much better and give a significant increase in each season.
