These seeds that are planted in your house or greenhouse should be watered with warm water as tomatoes love the warmth.

In the weeks that follow, the tomato plants should be given some time outside during a warm day with little to no wind. Weather must be watched like a hawk as weather changes can affect your tomato plants particularly in extremely cold weather.

Before planting your plant, add some compost at the bottom of the hole and make sure that the plant is covered almost to the brink which will allow for the roots to grow out faster. Make sure the plant is warm because tomatoes love the warmth. After the plant is planted and cozy a drip system must be set to water the plant and they must also be caged. The cage is there to allow the plant to be able to grow properly, remembering to contain your plant every night underneath a sleeping bag to keep them safe from the cold. The tomato plant must be continuously watered from the root to support the successful growth.
