Tips For Growing A Bumper Crop Of Tomatoes

When: Seedlings should be planted in the Spring after all danger of frost has passed. You can either purchase these at a local greenhouse or try starting your own by seed (start indoors about 6 to 8 weeks before the last expected frost).

Plenty of light will be needed to prevent seedlings from becoming too “leggy” before they can be moved outdoors so either choose a warm, sunny location or make sure you have a grow light.

Once about 6″ tall, they’ll be ready for planting (smaller varieties like the dwarf will be ready around 4″ tall).
