Tomatoes need warm conditions to germinate, ideally 18 to 23 deg. C. soil temperature. Use of a heat tray is recommended in cool areas. Sow seed August to November (cold): August to December (temp): AYR in tropics. 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 1 cm deep, under glass, August to September (cold), August to December (warm) or all year in the tropics. Feed well, keeping well watered at all times. Expect germination in 10 days at 26 deg. C. soil temperature. Pruning and staking required.
