    Calcium nitrate, a two-component nitrogen water-soluble fertilizer containing 13-15% nitrogen in the nitrate form and 19% calcium, is considered the best source of nitrogen for acidic soils.

    Calcium nitrate is used in the spring for feeding fruit, vegetable and flower crops. The most effective liquid top dressing under the root. It is good to give it to winter garlic and turnip sets planted before winter (3 tablespoons per 10 liters of water), as well as strawberries before flowering (2 tablespoons per 10 liters of water). Another lover of this fertilizer is cabbage. With a solution of calcium nitrate, seedlings are fed under the root (1 teaspoon per 1 liter of water) or 1 teaspoon is added to the hole during planting, mixed with the soil.
    It is also useful for flowers (2 tablespoons per 10 liters of water), especially all bulbs, as well as peonies and roses. Calcium promotes the rapid absorption of nitrogen and makes their flower stalks strong. They give calcium nitrate and ampelous petunia seedlings (1 teaspoon per 1 liter of water), this strengthens the fragile skeleton of a tiny bush.

    Calcium nitrate, which is highly soluble in water, is often used for foliar dressing of tomatoes, peppers, eggplants and cucumbers (1 tablespoon per 10 liters of water). She saves nightshade brothers from top rot, and cucumbers, all flower and vegetable seedlings from root rot.

    To speed up the emergence of seedlings, soak in its solution (1 tablespoon per 1 liter of water) and planting material: tubers, bulbs, sevok, rhizomes.

    Last spring, some of my flowers after wintering did not look good, they did not grow well. I decided to feed them with calcium nitrate, the effect of which I saw on seedlings (it develops faster, forms roots well).


    I noticed small signs of growth in pets only a couple of weeks after watering with fertilizer (according to instructions). Once again I fed them.
    And after a month and a half, the plants were unrecognizable: not only the foliage was restored, but also buds were laid in flowering species. So double watering with a solution of saltpeter gave impetus to the growth of the root system (I saw it during transplantation), the aerial part, and did not push back flowering.
    IF at least part of the roots of the plant remains, you can give it a second life.
