  1. Check for weight: the planting material is immersed in a 5% salt solution for 5 minutes. The floating seeds are considered unsuitable and are removed, the remaining ones are washed.
  2. Keeping in a 1% solution of potassium permanganate for a quarter of an hour provides the necessary disinfection.
  3. Prepare the solution mineral fertilizers (you can use a ready-made mixture). The seeds should be immersed in it for 12 hours.

The containers are filled with potting soil. Prepared seeds are pressed to a depth of 1 centimeter, keeping a distance of 3 cm between rows and 2 cm between seeds. The earth is leveled, well moistened with a spray bottle, covered with a film and placed in a warm place.
