How to Grow
Sow seeds indoors about 6-8 weeks before last spring frost date - use a peat moss based growing mix for germination and growing seedlings. The temperature of the seedling mix should be 21-24C (70-75F) for prompt germination. When seedlings are 4cm (1.75") high, transplant each into individual peat pots - reducing temperatures to 15-18C (59-65F) until planting in the garden late May. After hardening off, transplant into well-drained organic soil 60cm (24") apart for determinate varieties and 90cm (36") apart for indeterminate varieties. Tomatoes need warmth, direct sunlight & a steady supply of water. Keep plants evenly watered as fluctuations in available soil moisture can lead to a host of problems such as fruit cracking or splitting, irregular fruiting and increasing the chance of blossom end rot developing. Apply a mulch or straw around plants to protect them from soil borne diseases and to help conserve soil moisture.
