In the spring, when the active gardeners, with ground end holidays from garden Affairs, we can start preparations for the next spring-summer season.
In particular, I want to advise how to simplify and “to mechanize” the future of planting seeds in the soil is simple and original means.
It is known that most trouble delivers sowing small seeds of a type of poppy seeds. They stick together in groups, and after germination they have to thin out, losing some of the crop; instead of falling into the prepared grooves carried away by the wind — and again losses. And when you consider that today the seeds are quite expensive, the problems of seeding understandable to everyone.
However, there is a simple way to avoid these problems, a so — called ribbon planting. I cut from rolls of paper (e.g., toilet) long narrow strips of width 1 see Expanding and spreading them on the table in several rows, on each tape at equal intervals in the 2-3 inches I put a drop of starch paste. Dispense drop by drop small seeds (carrot, dill, etc.); after drying, they are held securely in strips.
