How to Plant Heirloom Tomato Seeds

Bee introduces how to plant

Sow seed in cell packs or flats, press into soil and lightly cover. Kept at 75-90°F., germination is in 8-15 days. Transplant into the garden 2-4 ft. apart after all danger of frost.

Heirloom tomatoes grow too large for the typical 3 foot tomato cage. Begin by tying each plant to one 6 foot stake. Then create a 2 foot square with 4 stakes around each plant. Wrap garden twine around the stakes at 6 inch intervals up the square, adding more rows of twine as your plants get taller.
