Planting+
Tomato seeds require no prior treatment although steeping them in lukewarm water for 12 hours encourages germination.
Care+
When there is no longer the risk of frost and night temps are above 12°C, young tomato plants can be planted outdoors but it is advisable to harden them off first to get them acclimatised.. To do this stand your seedlings in a sheltered or shady spot for one hour longer every day for a week, they will then be ready to pot up - 3 plants to a large pot. Then stand the pots in a sheltered sunny spot. When planting in the garden, choose a sheltered sunny spot and plant in rows - 70 cm apart from each other. Tie each plant to a cane. Remove side shoots to encourage growth upwards. Tie up new growth and remove other new side shoots weekly. (Shrub forming or hanging tomatoes require neither cane nor removal of shoots). Tomatoes grown outdoors need all the energy to grow and encourage fruiting on the main stem. Tomatoes generally pollinate themselves but (bumble) bees will help too. However to encourage fruiting, you can shake the main stem - but be careful not to damage the plant. The fruits will soon appear. When the first bunches of fruit appear, remove the lower leaves to encourage growth. Tomatoes also thrive with a regular feed of Bakker's tomato fertiliser! Tomatoes in the greenhouse usually grow taller so will require longer canes or some garden twine or wire attached vertically. Try not to wet the plant when watering – best is to water the soil. Water more often in dry periods - keep the beds free of weeds and your plants will thrive.
Specifics+
Tomatoes thrive in the greenhouse but also grow very well outdoors, always choose a warm, sheltered spot. Tomatoes were brought from South America by the Spaniards and then proceeded to conquer the world. Tomato plants overlap seeking support so the stem needs help from the cane to grow strong. Compact varieties do fine in pots. Those grown in the greenhouse can easily reach 2 metres in height, the same varieties grown outdoors will not be so tall. Canes of 1.5 metres are usually sufficient – In the greenhouse for extra height, use twine twisted along the main stem from bottom to top and wrap it around the main stem.
