Please choose organic seeds or Heirloom Tomatoes. There are so many varieties buy what suits your garden and tastes.
Things You Need to Sprout
- Obviously the seeds (There are lots of places to buy good seeds online or at your local Coop)
- Potting Soil (Get a potting mix it is blended to absorb water well, but also let the excess drain.
I buy potting soil that is free from chemical additives. This supports my organic
lifestyle. Just ask what do you want to eat and expose your family and pets to. )
- Labeling Method (You can write on the side of the container or use popsicle sticks, or regular
labels. sticks, or regular labels.)
Tomato seed germinates within 5-10 days. Seeds can be started 6-8 weeks before you intend to transplant outdoors. Your transplant date will depend on your last frost date (determined by you r USDA hardiness zone) and that year's actual weather. So if you plan to transplant outdoors in early May, start your seedlings indoors in mid- to late March.
Dampen the Potting Soil: Dampen the potting mix before you put it I the containers. Add some water and work it through. Keep adding water until the mix stays compressed in your hand, but is not dripping wet. It should break apart when you poke it with your finger.
Fill the Pots: Fill your containers and gently firm the soil so that it is about an inch from the top.
Label your sprout. Sprinkle 2–3 seeds into the furrow and cover them with a sprinkling of potting mix. Gently press the mix down, so the seeds make good contact with the soil. You can spray the surface with water if it doesn’t feel moist enough. Place your containers somewhere warm and check them daily to make sure the soil is moist and watch for germination.
