How far apart should you plant tomatoes? Guide to growing tomatoes

The date of the last frost can differ depending where in the country the tomatoes will be planted, so check this before moving the plants outside.

Gardeners’ World explains: “Choose a sunny, sheltered spot, where you can plant them into a border (into soil that has had plenty of well-rotted garden compost added), or into 30cm pots, or put two or three plants in a growing bag.

“If growing tomatoes in a greenhouse, try growing alongside basil, which thrives in the same conditions.”

The Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) also explains that once the “flowers of the first truss are beginning to open”, tomato plants can be planted 45 to 60cm apart outside in a warm spot of the garden.
