You can use a substrate purchased from a specialized store, in which case additional processing is not required. Read about how to prepare the soil in the greenhouse in spring here.
Selection and processing of seeds

Before germination, pickle the seeds in a solution of manganese or the drug "Virtan-Micro"... Place the treated seeds in a damp gauze for germination. Carefully monitor the humidity, not allowing the gauze to dry out. Excessive hydration is also not recommended.

You can also use special mini greenhouses. Planting is recommended in grooves with a depth of 1.0-1.5 centimeters... Sprinkle on top with soil, bringing the depth of planting seeds to 2.0 centimeters, slightly compact the earth, pour water at room temperature. Close the box with foil or glass, place in a warm, well-lit place. Remove the glass after the sprouts appear. Stimulants can be used to accelerate the growth process.
During the growth period of 2-4 true leaves, the seedlings are picked, seating them in separate containers. They can be peat glasses, cut juice bags. The seedling is transferred along with the root ball of soil. After picking for a couple of days, plantings should be shaded.
After rooting, the seedlings are placed in lighted places for further growth.... The seedlings prepared for planting have a stem thickness of about 8-9 millimeters, the height reaches at least 20 centimeters with well-formed leaves and inflorescences.

Before planting, each hole is spilled with half a bucket of warm water... Saplings of the Klusha tomato variety, given the small height of the bush, should not be deeply buried.
Care, feeding, watering
The seedlings planted in the holes in the process of growth need watering with warm water, which is carried out after sunset in order to avoid burning the leaves during the day. Weeds needing, loosening of the soil... Mulching is good for weed control. At least twice during the period of growth and vegetation, plants need top dressing with full mineral fertilizer.
