200-250 Seeds/Package Untreated Non GMO
Sow seeds indoors about 6-8 weeks before last Spring frost date, use a peat moss based growing mix for growing seedlings. The temperature of the seeding mix should be 21-24 C (70 – 75 F) for prompt germination. When the seedlings are 4 cm (1.75″)high, transplant each into individual peat pots, reducing temperature to 15–18 C (59 – 65 F) until planting in the Garden late May. After hardening off, transplant into well drained Organic soil 60 cm (24″) apart for (Determinate) varieties and 90 cm (36″) apart for (Indeterminate) varieties. Tomato’s need warm direct Sunlight and steady supply of water. Apply water directly into soil rather than showering down over the plants. Rotate the crop position in the Garden every year. Dig out and discard any diseased plants, do not compost. It is also very important to keep plants evenly watered, as fluctuations in soil moisture can lead to a host of problems such as fruit cracking, splitting, and the chance of blossom end rot developing. Apply a mulch of straw around each Tomato plant to protect them from soil borne diseases and to help conserve soil moisture. Enjoy your sweet Summer harvest!
