The Tomato Chronicles: The Move to a New Home

Tomatoes are pretty easy to transplant to a container or garden.

Actually the deeper you plant and the more “teased” the roots are the stronger the plant will be for the growing season.

As stated before one of the most important decisions one needs to make is location.

Tomatoes need at least 8 hours of full sun per day. If that is not possible then red plastic needs to be used as a “landscape cloth” to maximize UV light. Another factor that needs to be considered is water.

If where you plan to plant your tomatoes is not near a water source then accommodations need to be made. Inconsistent watering has caused the loss of many tomatoes to bottom-rot. Once these decisions have been made planting your tomato plant is simple.
