Growing Rodade Tomato
Tomatoes require a long growing season, and are best started indoors 6 weeks before the anticipated transplanting date (after the final frost of the spring).
For best results, sow the Tomato Seeds ½” deep in a well-drained, soil-less starting mix.
Seeds require warm soil. The warmer the soil, the faster the germination.
Keep soil moist, but not soggy while awaiting germination. Moderate watering slightly once seedlings break through the soil.
Wait at least a week or two after the last frost before transplanting the seedlings.
Tomatoes do better if the seedlings are planted deeper than they were grown in containers. Set them in the ground so that the soil level is just below the lowest leaves. Roots will form along the buried stem, establishing a stronger root system
