Advantages and disadvantages
Variety Zanachka f1 not so long ago began to be grown in garden plots. Reviews of summer residents allow us to say that it has more advantages than disadvantages.
- increased resistance to the main types of diseases;
- high productivity;
- universal use of fruits;
- excellent taste characteristics;
- undemanding care;
- suitability for long-distance transportation and long-term storage without loss of marketability;
- lack of bitterness, which is genetically inherent.
Compared to the advantages, the disadvantages of this variety are insignificant. The main one is that for pollination, stash cucumbers require the obligatory intervention of insects. It is also not possible to harvest seeds on your own, since the variety is hybrid.
Even if you manage to collect your own seed and grow seedlings from it, the daughter plants will not have the same characteristics as the mother plants.
Cucumbers of the Zanachka variety are grown both by seedlings and by direct sowing of seeds into the ground. For seedlings, seeds are sown in the last decade of April or early May. It is worth planting young plants in a permanent place when 2-3 true leaves are formed on them. The first time requires the installation of film shelters over them and protection from direct sunlight. Direct sowing of seeds in open ground is carried out in the last decade of May or at the beginning of June.
Cucumber variety The stash is planted on the beds according to the 40x40 scheme, the seeds are buried no more than 4 cm. The planting site should be sufficiently lit, and the soil fertile. If necessary, organic fertilizers are applied before planting the plants. Rotted cow dung is the best option. Its solution is also used in a ratio of 1: 5 to water. Chicken droppings diluted in water at a ratio of 1:20 are also suitable. If it is not possible to add organic matter, then complex mineral fertilizers are used.
It is necessary to remember about the dosage of fertilizers when applying them under the cucumbers Stash f1. If you add more than the prescribed dose, then the excess will accumulate in the soil and can not only adversely affect the growth and development of plants, but also lead to human poisoning.
It is best to make an organic pillow in cucumber beds. It will provide Stash f1 with the necessary supply of nutrients and saturate the root system with carbon dioxide.
From the reviews of summer residents, the conclusion suggests itself that it is better to sow the seeds of the Nest in several stages. This will not only help protect the seedlings from unexpectedly returning frosts, but also significantly extend the fruiting period. But do not sow cucumbers later than mid-June. Long daylight hours and summer heat do not have the best effect on the growth and development of young plants.
In the first days after planting Stash f1 on the beds, you must carefully monitor the soil moisture. If during the day it was noticed that the leaves began to wither, then in the evening they water it with water at room temperature. It is necessary to constantly loosen the soil and remove weeds until the tops are spread over the entire area of the garden. They try to distribute the lashes evenly over the entire area of the allocated area.
During the fruiting period, the amount of irrigation for cucumbers is increased. If the weather is hot and dry, then the plants are watered daily in the evening hours.
Cucumber variety Zanachka does not require fertilization, provided that the beds have been well seasoned beforehand. In the case of a prolonged cold snap, the leaves turn pale and even yellow. You need to take 7-10 grams of any nitrogen fertilizer, dilute it in a bucket of water and spray the cucumber leaves. The procedure is carried out exclusively in the evening.
The f1 stash is popular with both summer residents and professional farmers. An unpretentious and productive early variety deserves respect also due to its increased resistance to diseases and excellent taste of the fruit.
