  • Follow these simple steps to grow tomatoes, and I can guarantee with a little patience and perseverance you will be delighted with the results!

  • Whilst it might be freezing cold wherever you maybe, it should not deter you from gardening, as it is simple to plant tomato seeds inside. 

  • Follow these simple steps:

  • First fill two small pots with good quality compost (soil). Water the compost with tap water and leave it to drain.

  • Place approximately five seeds on the surface of the damp compost, spacing them evenly in the pot. Take your time, as this can be a fiddly job. Then sprinkle a thin, even layer of fine compost over the seeds, ensuring they're not disturbed


  • Cover each pot with cling film - creating a mini-propagator, which keeps the compost damp and aids germination.Place pots on a window sill in plenty of light (where the plant can get maximum sunlight). Aim to keep the room at 21°-25°C while the seeds germinate.

  • Tomato seeds will take 8 days to germinate, then the seed leaves (the first two leaves of a plant!) will appear once these leaves fully develop then remove the root ball (network of roots) from the pot and gently separate each plant with a pencil.

  • In a new pot containing multi-purpose compost, make planting holes with your pencil. Then, holding each seedling by its leaves, gently tease the roots into the planting hole. Firm the soil around each plant and water.

  • As your plant grows, stick a cane stick near the root of the plant carefully, and loosely tie up the main stem so that the plant can get full support.

  • As the season advances remove yellowing leaves from the tomato plant.

  • Water regularly to keep the compost moist, but once flowers appear lessen your watering, but don’t let the soil get too dry.

  • If possible give tomato feed once a week.

  17. Can one plant individual seeds? It would sound better to me. And once the seed leaves are visible, does the plant need as much sunlight? One last thing, where can I see the response to my query?

  22. Good start. But What is feed? Please mention for beginners to use tomato fertilizer. Also size of pot is important depending on type. I have seen One plant per large pot. They need space.
