Tomato Plants FAQs

Take a look at some of the frequently asked questions we receive from those looking to buy Tomato Plants in the UK. You can contact our Customer Service Team or browse our general FAQs for further advice.

When to plant Tomato Plants

Tomato plants are best planted in late spring, after the last frost has passed. This allows them to grow and produce fruit during the warm summer months. Choose a sunny location with well-drained soil for optimal growth.

How to Plant Tomato Plants

To plant tomato plants, prepare the soil by adding compost or well-rotted manure. Dig a hole deep enough to bury two-thirds of the plant's stem, which encourages strong root growth. Space the plants about 45-60 cm apart. Water thoroughly after planting and mulch to retain moisture and suppress weeds.

How long do Tomato Plants take to grow

Tomato plants typically take about 60 to 80 days to produce ripe fruit after planting, depending on the variety. Providing regular watering, feeding, and support for the growing vines will promote healthy growth and a bountiful harvest.
