Cultivation and care

Eggplant seeds for seedlings are planted in fertile, disinfected soil. The best time for this is the beginning of March. To a new place (greenhouse or vegetable garden) Galich can be planted as early as May or early June, as soon as 5-6 leaflets appear on the sprouts.

The depth of sowing of seeds of eggplants is no more than 2 cm, shoots appear in 5-7 days.

Optimal for the variety Galich planting density in a greenhouse or garden - 5-6 bushes per square meter. m. Too dense planting of bushes leads to a decrease in yield.

For growing eggplants in the open field you need to choose a place protected from the wind. The plant tolerates the lack of sunlight, so slight shading of the plot with planting is acceptable.

Important! The ideal planting depth of bushes is up to cotyledon leaves. It is not recommended to plant deeper, as trunk rot can occur.

In the process of growth, eggplants need to periodically feed the soil, regularly get rid of weeds, and constantly keep the soil moist. About the formation of beautiful bushes and the most common mistakes gardeners talked about in this video:

Reviews gardeners

Alena, 42, Tula Of all the varieties of eggplants I prefer Galich. These dark purple beauties are well kept, the taste is excellent. This year, I ventured to make an eggplant bed between fruit trees. Galich liked it there - weeds hardly grow under the trees, so weeding was less. By the time the eggplants were planted, the flowering was already over, the bed was clean, without unnecessary waste. The bushes grew well, although the leaves were slightly paler than last year, but this did not affect the yield. About 15–13 kg of large, fleshy eggplants were removed from 15 bushes per season. Evgeniy, 43, Novokuznetsk I have a film greenhouse and a vegetable garden, I tried to plant it there and there. The disadvantages of growing eggplants in the open field is the attack of insect pests - the Colorado potato beetle, aphids. Several bushes Galich ill "black leg". I never leave diseased plants - I clean it right away so that the disease does not go to other bushes. Outside, weeds grow faster and thicker, constantly lacking them out just does not have enough time. I did not have such problems with the greenhouse. Greenhouse soil for seedlings Galich prozhalival in the oven, and he also added a little while planting. Weeds in the greenhouse almost did not grow, to attract bees, I hung plastic containers with honey solution. Now, the “little blue ones” will be planted only in this way - at first there is more trouble, of course, but the bushes are healthy and strong. And it is much easier to take care of them afterwards. Anatoly, 60, Penza I was brought back seeds from the city last year by the seeds of eggplant Galich. Seedlings grown in a room in a special box. I decided not to dive, as the variety is new to me. The germination test showed a good percentage - out of 50 seeds of Galich, 39 sprouted and 30 ascended. Since this is a lot for me, I planted 20 bushes. In general, they removed almost 18 kg of eggplant. I was pleased that the plant does not take up much space, the trunk is thick and steady. Eggplants taste very good - we fried them, rolled them up in banks, left them for the winter - kept in the cellar almost until spring.
