EPIN FOR STRAWBERRY, RASPBERRY AND CURRANT
For several years now I have been testing epin in the garden. I rooted cuttings of viburnum, actinidia, currants in it. Previously, I kept them for a day in a dark place in a solution of epin (half an ampoule per 1 liter of water). All cuttings took root and, in comparison with the control, had more developed roots in a year.
For two years in a row I have been treating raspberries with epin (1 ampoule per 5 liters of water). The first time I spray in the spring, when the lower leaves begin to bloom. The second - before the threat of frost. The third - during budding, the fourth - just before flowering. The berries have become cleaner, larger, the bushes are healthier. Harvest, according to the most conservative estimates, increased by 30-50%.
I'll tell you more about strawberries.
In the spring, when the bed is freed from snow, I remove last year's leaves, clean the sockets and spill the plants and adjacent soil with hot water at a temperature of no more than 65 ° from the kettle. I try to do this in the morning, and in the evening I feed strawberries with a solution of complete mineral fertilizer - about 1 liter per bush. The next day, I loosen the soil and spray it with epin (6 drops per 200 ml of water). I also process strawberries on the eve of frost (1 ampoule per 5 liters of water), during budding and flowering.
After picking the berries, but no later than July 25, I carefully cut off all the foliage with secateurs, leaving stumps 1-5 cm high. ) for rapid regrowth of leaves. Sometimes after 2-6 days I repeat spraying (200 drop per 7 ml). In late October - early November, strawberry bushes, in cases of a snowless, frosty beginning of winter, are treated with a solution of epin (10 ampoule per 1 liters of water).
For better wintering, raspberries can be treated with the same solution.
Before transplanting from the garden to the school of strawberry whiskers, I keep them for a day in a solution of epin (half an ampoule per 1 liter of water). A week later, I process the leaves (6 drops per 200 ml of water), and then, if necessary, with a working solution (1 ampoule per 5 liters of water).
Last year, after the first wave of frosts, I treated blackcurrants with a working solution. I collected at least 5 kg of berries from a bush, however, they were smaller than in other years due to lack of water.
I was convinced that it is useful to treat plants with epin if they are sick or affected by pests. First I use the appropriate preparation, then I spray it with epin (6 ml per 200 ml of water). It relieves stress in affected plants. Do not purchase the drug from random sellers, do not freeze it and do not keep it in the light.
