- Do you want to free the earth that you have from the hardware store from fungi and bacteria? You can use the microwave for this. Simply put the earth that has been moisturized in advance for at least 5 minutes in the microwave and let it cool down afterwards.
- An alternative is to use the Jiffy pallets for the seeding of the tomatoes. You can also use a germination station with a small greenhouse and a warming matt and you are ready to go. Ideal seeding is between January and March.
- When transplanting the tomatoes please pay every time close attention that from the long stem, only a small part stays above the earth in order to aid the plant to build new roots in the different parts of the stem.
- Tomato plants grow while germinating long stems. This happens if there is not enough light or if the temperature during the germination phase is too high. In this case you need take off the lid when the plant begins to germinate. Also at this point you can turn off the heat and find a place where there is more light to place the tray.
- In every case wait until the end of May before bringing the plants outside.
- Tomato plants like a mix of 50% compost and 50% earth – this offers the plants the right base of nutrients.
- If you see leaves that have flees, the biggest enemy of the tomatoes, remove these also from the younger pants. This way young and healthy leaves can grow after.
- Against late blight use a clay pot that has a diameter of at least 10 cm. Put this next to the plant in the greenhouse or outside. When watering in the clay pots fungi cannot come from the earth to the leaves of the tomatoes. Leave also a space of 80 cm between the different plants so that the tomatoes can dry out easily and the different infections cannot spread as easily from a tomato to another.
- Plant the tomatoes outside if you do not have a greenhouse in a large pot than rather directly into the soil. When making this the risk of late blight is strongly diminished if the plants are put in a place that is protected against the sun and rain.
- When the plants are planted in a pot or outdoors they need the right support!
- Please watch out and fertilize your tomato plant every 2 weeks and starting as soon as the first blossoms start to appear.
- Pollinate the plants by hand, by gently shaking the plant. Since the tomatoes have hermaphrodite flowers they can pollinate themselves.
- In a tissue you can store the tomatoes individually wrapped for a couple of weeks after you have harvested these. They are best kept in a cold and dry cellar.
