Garden hybrid wild strawberry with the sonorous name “Temptation” forms the first harvest of marketable berries about a month and a half after planting seedlings in a permanent place. Under favorable weather and climatic conditions, high-quality soil preparation and compliance with the cultivation technology, each adult plant forms about 1.5-1.6 kg of selected berries.
The berry plant immediately after planting lays a crop, the value of which does not directly depend on the length of daylight and time of year. That is why this hybrid form is of particular interest to farms engaged in year-round cultivation of high-yield berries.
Harvest is formed not only on adult berry bushes, but also on formed outlets. However, for this variety there are also some drawbacks, among which intense mustard formation, significantly depleting the mother plant. In addition, quite often, beginning gardeners are unable to obtain high-quality seedlings from seeds.
To plant the Temptation strawberry, you need to select a well-lit area with the most fertile soil and observe the distance between the berry seedlings of 45-50 cm. However, most often this variety is grown by sowing seed material. Seeds must meet all the requirements of international standards and GOST. As a planting mixture, you should use ready-made flower soil or prepare the soil for planting yourself, using three parts of sand and five parts of high-quality humus.
It is recommended to start sowing in February or early March. Seeds should be sown very carefully on an abundantly moistened surface, without burying them in the soil. Subject to the temperature regime and optimal moisture indicators, the first shoots appear in about a month.
As the seedlings grow and before diving into separate seedlings, it is necessary to maintain temperature indicators at the level of + 22-23 ° С. After the appearance of two true leaves, seedlings dive. The formation of six true leaves is a sufficient condition for planting in the ground at a constant place (at positive temperatures and good heating of the soil).
The plant is responsive to high agricultural technology. When growing, you need to carry out watering and top dressing, regularly carry out loosening of the soil and thorough weeding. It is also necessary to periodically process plants, which will protect the berry culture from the most common diseases and strawberry pests. Spray berry bushes in spring with Taurus or Caesar preparations.
For the winter period, repeated preventive treatment is carried out, removal of dry leaves and peduncles, pruning of outlets and, if necessary, their rooting. In most regions, the berry culture of this variety needs protection from frost.
