When you plant your babies out you need to not be afraid to plant them deep, at least to above their seedling leaves. This way they will form a good strong root system that will support the plant. I'll mulch around each plant with straw, this will help keep the soil moist especially on those really hot days we get, but remember to keep the straw mulch away from their stems. Another thing I do is to use a good scattering of sulphate of potash around the base of the plant. It’s magic for tomatoes as it encourages good strong growth and lovely fruit.
So if you haven’t got your plants yet, why not pop down to your local garden centre and choose a few yummy varieties for your own back yard and soon you’ll be enjoying tomatoes that really do taste like tomatoes should.
