How to grow tomatoes – tips for growing and harvesting tomatoes

When the young vines reach about 15 or 20cm in height, the flowers of the first truss are just beginning to open up and the risk of frost has gone, it’s time to plant the young vines.

If you’re planting in the ground, make sure to dig plenty of garden compost or manure during the winter.

Just before planting, rake in a general purpose fertiliser to feed the tomatoes – they tend to be very hungry plants.

Plant the tomatoes about 45cm apart, leaving 75cm between the rows.
