Tomatoes need warm conditions to germinate, ideally 18 to 23 deg. C. soil temperature. Use of a heat tray is recommended in cool areas.
Pruning and staking required.
Sow seed 1 cm deep, under glass, August to November in cold and warm areas, all year in the tropics. Transplant 45 cm apart around 6 weeks later. Expect germination in 10 days at 26 deg.C. soil temperature. Keep soil moist but avoid either too much or too little water.
Tasmanian Customers: Please note that all tomato seed to Tasmania is treated to comply with Quarantine Regulations.
