How to Plant Tomato Seeds the Right Way!


Once you have started your favorite tomato varieties by seed, and the garden soil outside reaches at least 50-60 degrees F at night (lookup your frost dates and planting calendar), you'll be ready totransplant your young tomato plants into your garden.

If you want to ensure healthy tomato plants, there are a few steps you'll want to follow when planting them into the ground.

  1. Instead of digging a "hole", aim for more of a "trench". Make it about a foot long in length. 

  2. Loosen the soil.

  3. Amend the soil with compost.
  4. Add a little "slow-release" fertilizer into the trench as well. 

  5. Remove the leaves and branches along the stem, leaving several of the ones at the top of the plant. 

  6. Lay your tomato plant horizontally into the trench and position the top of the plant upwards, gently. 

  7. Fill in the trench with soil, leaving the top of your tomato plant sticking up out of the ground with several healthy leaves. The stem of the plant should mostly be under the soil if you've followed these steps correctly. 

  8. By using this method of planting your tomato plants, you'll encourage more roots to grow along the entire length of the stem, below the surface of the soil. The end game will be a stronger, more vigorous and overall healthier tomato plant.

Nasturtiums, the BEST Companion for your Tomatoes!

For those of you that know about Nasturtiums, we can agree they are one of the BEST companion plant for your tomatoes.  Nasturtiums are so popular and there's reason why.  The Alaska Mix is the most popular.  Nasturtium flowers are edible.  The petals have a slight peppery taste, and the seeds and leaves are also edible! These are PERFECT for beginner gardeners! Very easy to grow from seed and can be grown just about anywhere, even places that are susceptible to drought!
