Sowing, Seeds, Planting If you have space to grow tomatoes from seed under cover, sow them in early March, somewhere warm and cosy. You'll then have decent-sized tomato plants in flower, ready and waiting to go into greenhouse beds or growbags at the end of April, when very cold nights are unlikely.
Care Tips Under cover or outside they need staking, regular watering and feeding for best results. Need trimming and support, pinch out the tops once they have set 5 or 6 trusses. While still small, you also need to pinch out the side shoots. Water regularly to prevent splitting.
Storing Tomatoes can be kept at room temperature for 4-5 days (they will lose their flavour if kept in the fridge), and will freeze well.
Harvesting Harvest from July - October, keep picking regularly.
