Soil: Tomatoes are very nitrogen- hungry, so prepare the soil by integrating nitrogen-rich pea or broad bean plants into your soil as a green manure. Alternatively, mix compost and chook manure through your patch a fortnight prior to planting.
Soil pH Level: 5.5–7.5
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.
