As a top dressing, a mixture of 200 g of wood ash, 40 g of superphosphate, 25 g of potassium has proven itself well. Fans of organic fertilizers scatter cow dung over the garden. For 1 sq. m. of area 1 bucket of substance is consumed. Immediately before sowing, the soil is thoroughly loosened with a rake.

Caring for a variety of cucumbers Finger is no different from caring for all types of cucumbers. In order for the plant to form as many fruits as possible, the bushes are regularly watered and fed. After heavy rain and the next watering, the soil is loosened. Weeds are removed as needed.
