Growing tomato seeds

Sprinkle the seed thinly onto good quality seed compost. Cover with 1.5mm of compost and water lightly with a watering can.

If you are growing a few plants…

  • Sow two seeds into a 7.5cm pot. Keep the compost moist but be careful not to overwater as wet conditions can encourage “damping-off” disease and other mould problems.
  • After germination, remove the smaller plant.
  • Pot-on the tomato seedlings as soon as they are big enough to handle. Hold the plants by the leaves.
  • Taking care not to touch the stems, transplant them into 7.5cm pots. Protect the plant from frost, cold winds, droughts, etc.

If you want to grow them outside…

  • Make sure you dig in plenty of garden compost or manure just before planting, because tomatoes are hungry plants!
  • Plant tomatoes about 45cm apart leaving 75cm between the rows.
