How to sow: Sow 2- 3 seed into an individual small pot ( 2 inches) with a soilless multi-purpose compost mix, which can then be topped up with extra compost as needed to provide more stability and encourage root growth as the seedling grows. Use food wrap to cover the pot and water well with a fine spray once a day.
Transplanting: Seedlings should be planted out when they have developed four true leaves. To prepare them for the big move, be sure to harden them off for one to two weeks before transplanting, providing gradual exposure to gentle winds, sunlight, and temperatures outdoors.
1. How long should tomato seedlings be hardened off before transplanting outside?
Tomato seedlings should be hardened off for 1-2 weeks in full sun before transplanting them outside, after the last frost. This gradual exposure to outdoor conditions helps the seedlings adapt to sunlight, wind, and temperature changes.
2. When should tomato seedlings be transplanted to larger pots?
Tomato seedlings should be potted up to 3-4 inch pots when the first true leaves develop, rather than the cotyledon leaves.
3. What are the recommended soil temperatures for tomato seed germination?
Tomato seeds require high soil temperatures for good germination rates. It is important to provide a warm environment for successful seed germination.
4. When should tomato seeds be planted outside?
Tomato seeds should not be planted outside until 2 weeks after the last frost.
5. When should tomato seeds be started indoors?
Tomato seeds should be started indoors 6-8 weeks before the last frost date.
