Onion seeds Chernushka

Chernushka - small seeds, they got the name because of its black color. They are more than poppy seeds or radish. Uneven, ribbed, slightly oblong. From seeds we grow a small onion, which is called a sevok, and from a sev we already grow large heads. Thus, the process of growing lasts two seasons. There are technologies that allow growing heads out of chernushki in one season.

Onion Bolls

To get Chernushka in the country or in the garden, we select several heads that we liked and plant in the ground in order to get seeds from them. Onion umbrellas grow, which bloom and after flowering, they throw out seeds. There is a danger that flowers will spoil wasps or onion flies. Vegetable growers cover flowers with gauze protective capswhich protect umbrellas from precipitating seed mass into the ground and prevent insects from spoiling them.

Time to plant seeds

After collecting the seeds, they can be planted. Chernushka checked for germination. Good grains go up seventy-five percent or more. Last year's seeds may not ascend at all. Germination is checked in the usual way. Planting material is laid out on a moistened cloth, then after a few days, check how much has sprung. This determines the percentage of germination.

Checking seeds Chernushka germination

Chernushka planted in the soil in early spring or late autumn.

If you live in the city, you can germinate seeds on the windowsill, then from the pallets to plant in the ground.

Growing seedlings in the apartment occurs in the autumn and end of February. Growing up in an apartment requires special care. It is necessary:

How to plant nippers in the open ground in the spring

Both chernushka and seedlings can be planted in open ground. Seeds are planted to a depth of 1–2 centimeters. In light soils planted at 3 centimeters to prevent seed blowing in strong winds. Before planting, chernushka is treated for pests and diseases. It is possible to process the soil. You can pour rows with onion grains after planting.

It is undesirable to plant chernushka in a dry ground, especially germinated seeds, since the tender stems can dry out and disappear

Sowing onion seeds before winter is no different from spring sowing.. Places for planting in the garden should be changed to get rid of onion pests.

Onion planting rules according to Minaeva

Very comfortably plant the seeds on wet toilet paper, gradually folding it into a roll. Then the roll is placed in a container in which the water, the grains germinate, this seedling is cut once on greens, the greens are eaten. On a package 2 drops of "Epin" drip.

Minaeva advises not to grow nippers themselves, and buy in stores. Advise varieties:

  • Chalcedony;
  • Myachkovsky 300.

In the ground advises to plant in the furrows. Chernushka does not like sparseness, therefore seeds sow quite densely already germinated in previously prepared grooves.

Sprinkles salt in the grooves. The ground should be wet.

Before planting, germinates seed as follows:

  • puts the grain on wet gauze;
  • cheesecloth puts in the bag, then the bag inflates and sets on a sunny window, it turns out a mini greenhouse, the seeds germinate in a day or two.
Sprouted Onion Seeds

After planting, the seeds slightly fall asleep with a flat cutter. In the process of growth, seedlings erupt for food. Heads grow big. Recommends planting grade Bessonovsky.

Proper care after planting

After planting, it is not necessary to water immediately, the grains with water can go deep into the ground, it will be difficult for them to germinate. It is necessary to thin out shoots several times. Greens are used for food. When several mature sheets appear, you can feed the solution with cow dung in a ratio of 1 to 5. There are also remarks that onions cannot be fed, without additional fertilizing it is stored better.
