How to Grow Tomatoes

Sign in to rate this article!

Growing TomatoesGrowing Tomatoes is one of the most rewarding gardening activities and an easy way to start children gardening. They are easy to grow and quickly provide the freshest of tasty results. Tomatoes can be grown from seed or are readily available as seedlings.

Fight Heart Disease

Medical research shows that tomatoes could be the key to preventing blood clots that cause heart disease and strokes. That's because the yellow jelly which surrounds tomato seeds helps keep platelets in the blood from clumping together, therefore eliminating the risks.

When to Plant

The weather rather than the calender date, is the determining factor. They generally need three months of warm, frost free weather to produce well. With protection plants can be grown from August onwards. Labour weekend is the traditional time for planting tomatoes but they can be planted outdoors as soon as conditions allow, usually any time from September onwards.
