When to Sow Amateur Tomato Seeds

January to April

Where to Sow

Sow amateur tomato seeds under glass 0.5cm (1/4 in) deep in pots or trays of good seed sowing compost and lightly cover with a sprinkling of vermiculite or compost. Place the containers into a propagator at a temperature of 18–21°C .

What to do Next

Prick out the seedlings once they are large enough to handle, into 9cm (3 1/2in) pots. Transplant either to individual large pots, or growbag when 20cm (8in) high with 3 plants in each.  These can also be planted outdoors once all risk of frost has past. Amateur tomato plants have a bushy habit and do not require sideshooting. Water and feed plants regularly with a high potash feed once the first truss has set.

Maturity

July to October

Handy Tip

for an early outdoor crop, plant out at the end of May under cloches then remove as the plants get larger.
