Sowing and growing
So, start your tomato plants indoors. You pre-sow them from the end of March to mid-April. Once they’re strong enough, you move them outside at the end of May. This species can grow up to 2 meters tall, so it needs a trellis nearby.
Tomatoes use a lot of nutrients. Give them some extra MM-Plantfood when you plant them and add some more in mid-July.
Tomatoes also produce side shoots, which grow between the leaves and the main stem. They’re also known as ‘suckers’ because they drain a lot of energy from the rest of your plant. To avoid this, cut off the suckers early on.
Step-by-step sowing and growing instructions are in the Planty Gardening app.
How do you use tomatoes?
Pick ripe tomatoes right off the plant. The stem breaks easily when they're ready. Or, use scissors and cut them from the stems.
Tomatoes can be used raw or cooked. They're delicious in salads, sauces, soups and stir fries.
