Tomatoes are horticultural plants that, due to their rapid growth and high production, are one of the most widely cultivated both in the garden and in the flowerbed. They hardly require space to grow and develop, which is very interesting whether we have a small plot of land or if we have a patio or balcony.

They are also one of the simplest vegetables to grow. So if you would like to start taking care of the green and get it to bear fruit in spring, we are going to explain how to plant tomatoes.

How to plant potted tomatoes?



Tomatoes, in order to grow well and give an interesting amount of fruit, must be in pots of about 40cm in diameter.. But of course, we cannot transfer the newly germinated or purchased seedlings to such large pots, since otherwise the delicate rootlets would rot in less than we imagine. So, what to do?

To avoid problems, we have to do the following:

  1. When we are going to remove them from the seedbed, what we will do is prepare a pot for each one that measures 20cm in diameter, filling it practically completely.
  2. Then, we will make a small hole in the center with both fingers or with a stick.
  3. Next, we will take the seedlings and plant them in the container, making sure they are not too far below the edge.
  4. Finally, we will water.

After two months, we will repeat these steps, but this time we will transfer them to a 35-40cm pot and we will place a tutor for them so that they can develop correctly.

And in the orchard?

We will need some tutors like these so that the tomato plants can grow well.

If we intend to plant a series of tomato plants in the orchard, what we must do is the following:

  1. The first thing is to prepare the ground, removing the stones as well as the wild herbs. In addition, it will also be necessary to pay it with organic fertilizers, such as manure o earthworm humus.
  2. Then, we will proceed to place the tutors, as seen in the image above, leaving a distance of about 40cm between them. In this way, as the seedlings grow, we can hold them to them, preventing the stems from breaking.
  3. Next, we will install the drip irrigation system if we do not have it installed.
  4. Now, we will plant the seedlings so that they are separated from each other by about 35-40cm.
  5. Finally, we will water.



Thus, we can obtain a good harvest .
