Position: Choose a sunny, well-drained spot in your patch, preferably a place you haven’t grown tomatoes in the previous season. 
How to Plant: Propagate in seed trays. Tomatoes are suitable larger pots, but prefer an in-ground veggie patch. It’s recommended to pinch out the first side shoots to encourage plant growth.
