RAISE TOMA­TOES FROM SEED SOWN IN POTS UN­DER COVER

Papakura Courier - - SITUATIONS VACANT -

Grow­ing your own toma­toes from seed is eco­nom­i­cal if you want to grow many dif­fer­ent va­ri­eties, or if you’ve saved your seed from last year’s fruit. They do, how­ever, need a lit­tle mol­ly­cod­dling. Sow tomato seeds in plas­tic seed trays or small in­di­vid­ual pots filled with ster­ile seed-rais­ing mix. Don’t sow too deep – a light (1-2mm) sprin­kle of seed-rais­ing over the top is suf­fi­cient. En­sure the mix is moist, but not wa­ter­logged, and cover with a plas­tic sheet or bag.
