The Secret To Incredible Tomatoes


Growing tomatoes can be a tricky endeavor, but it doesn’t have to be. In fact, if you follow these simple steps and use the right tools (like a soil thermometer), you’ll be able to grow incredible tomatoes even if you don’t have much space.

Choose the right time of year for planting.

When you are planning on planting your tomatoes, it is important to choose the right time of year. The best time to plant is in spring or summer. The next best time to plant is in the early morning. Another good option is planting in the evening, followed by afternoon and late afternoon respectively. It’s also important not to forget about watering your plants after they’re planted!

Choose the right variety for easy maintenance.

Choosing the right variety is important for avoiding disease, pests and other issues. You want to choose a tomato that is resistant to disease, grows well in your climate and soil type, tastes great and fits into your budget. Here are some tips on choosing tomatoes:

  • Check out the variety descriptions before you buy one. Look for common diseases or problems listed on the label.
  • If possible, try some of these varieties at a local nursery or garden center before buying them online or off season (which can be pricey!). You’ll get an idea of just how much work it takes to maintain them too!

Decide how large you want your garden to be.

The first thing you’ll need to do is determine how big your garden will be. This depends on how much space you have, how many people you want to feed, and what type of tomatoes you want to grow. For example, if it’s just you and your partner then a small three-foot by six-foot raised bed would be enough for the two of you. However, if there are kids involved too then maybe an eight foot by twenty foot plot would be best.

For most people, growing heirloom varieties makes sense because they taste better and have more flavor than hybrids which are bred for durability (which means less flavor). If this is important then consider planting as many heirlooms as possible because even though hybrid plants are stronger than their heirloom counterparts they still won’t produce nearly as much fruit when compared side by side with an equivalent sized plot full of nothing but true blue open pollinated seeds from which all modern day tomatoes stem from!

Choose a sunny spot in the yard or in a container.

One of the most important things to keep in mind when starting a vegetable garden is where you will be planting your tomatoes. Tomatoes need 6-8 hours of sunlight, so they should be planted in an area that has at least 6 hours of direct sunlight per day (and even more if possible).

You may find it difficult to find such a sunny spot in your yard, but there are ways around this problem. If you don’t have good access to an outdoor space for growing tomatoes, consider growing them indoors or on your balcony. You can also grow them vertically with planters, which has advantages including more sunlight exposure and less soil than traditional planting methods require

Make it inviting.

For your garden to succeed, you need to make it inviting to you. If you don’t enjoy working in it, why would you bother going out there?

Your soil should be fertile and good enough that your plants thrive without much intervention from you. Choose varieties that are easy to grow and highly productive; if it takes too much work for little reward, then find another variety!

Select the right tomato seeds.

Don’t buy tomato seeds from just anyone. It’s important to choose a reputable source when purchasing your seeds. You want to avoid buying from a company that has a bad reputation, or one you don’t trust.

Prepare your soil.

  • Soil should be loose and well-drained. If you have clay soil that doesn’t drain well, add compost or topsoil to loosen it up.
  • Add lime if your soil is acidic (pH below 6.5). Applying lime will help correct the pH of alkaline soils by increasing their acidity level.
  • Manure can also be added to alkaline soils; however, it’s not recommended for use in acidic soils because it makes them more alkaline and less healthy for plants to grow in over time.

Provide adequate water.

Watering is important for tomatoes, but how much water should you give your tomato plants? If you’re a new gardener and you have questions like this, I would encourage you to read the rulebooks on watering that are available online. There are many different opinions on how often to water tomatoes and what kind of container they should be planted in (e.g., plastic vs. wooden). This blog post isn’t going to cover those topics in detail; instead, it’s going to focus on the general idea: provide adequate water—but not too much!

It’s easy enough for me as a seasoned gardener who knows what he’s doing not only because I’ve done it before but also because I know that one thing will lead another until ultimately we get results which are satisfactory at least some of time if not most times so long as we put our minds into it hard enough or maybe even just sometimes without thinking about anything else except maybe what color shirt looks best with jeans today? No matter how good our intentions though there’s always room for improvement!

Position your tomato plants well while they’re young.

Planting your tomatoes properly is the most important step you can take to ensure a healthy, productive tomato plant. While it may seem like an easy task, there are many factors you need to consider when planting tomatoes.

Here are some tips for making sure that your tomato plants grow up and thrive:

  • Plant them in a sunny spot where they will get at least 6 hours of sunlight each day.
  • Plant them in an area where they can reach their full height (they should not be blocked by other plants or low-hanging branches).
  • Make sure the soil has good drainage so that water doesn’t collect around their roots or cause rot issues later on. You can test this by sticking a finger into the ground; if it feels moist after 5 seconds then it probably doesn’t have good drainage!
