Planning your site
Tomatoes are best grown in a greenhouse, polytunnel or conservatory as they love warmth and shelter. They will grow happily outside as long as you can try to give them a site which will be protected and receive plenty of sun. They are great in large pots, growbags and containers – there is really a tomato for every garden type! As a general rule, leave around 45cm around each plant.
The thing to remember is that they are hungry AND thirsty plants so you will need to keep watering very consisitent and feed them every two weeks with a high potasium feed once the fruits have appeared. Plants will need something to grow up whether inside or outside, so use a bamboo cane or some sturdy stringwrapped gently around the stem to provide support. You can pinch out the side shoots that grow diagonally between the main stem and main branches.
What to watch out for
Most tomato problems stem from erratic watering. Blight, Blossom End Rot, Tomato leaf mould and fungal issues which can enter through splits in fruit can usually be controlled by paying attention to soil moisture, ventilation and fertility.
What to do when your plants arrive
- Unpack them. Your seedlings will arrive carefully packed in bio-degradable straw, cardboard and paper. They may look a little bit bedraggled from their journey. Don’t panic – this is totally normal and they should soon perk up. Please try and unpack your plants as soon as they arrive, as every extra hour they spend in the box will add to the stress of travelling to their new home.
- Give them a drink. Having spent a day or two in the post, your new plants will be thirsty! Stand them up in some fresh water for a few minutes to make sure their roots have been thoroughly soaked before planting.
- Plant them out into their forever home! Your plants can’t wait to get their roots into the soil. Plant them out according to the instructions that will have come in the box with them. Make sure you water them in well, and give them plenty to drink until their roots have had a chance to get settled.
