Tomatoes need warm conditions to germinate, ideally 18 to 23 deg. C. soil temperature. Use of a heat tray is recommended in cool areas. Plant outdoors when all danger of frost is past (cold and temp), spacing plants about 60cm apart with 1 to 1.5 metres between rows. 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.
Sow 1cm deep under glass August to October (cold) August to December (warm), and all year in the tropics. Transplant 60cm apart around 6 weeks later. Expect germination in 12 – 14 days at 26 deg. C. soil temperature.
