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.
