Growing Tomato from Seeds to Harvest
‘Terminator’ grow on vigorously with a heavy yield and thrive in sunny raised beds, containers, and vegetable plots.
- For container growth, use a loose potting mix enriched with organic materials and amended with water-retaining materials such as cocopeat
- Container plants typically require more frequent feeding, watering and can be given a half-strength solution of fertilizer every week if needed.
- Once seedlings grow to about six inches tall, you can begin to harden them off in preparation for planting outdoors
- Transplant outdoors when nighttime temperatures no longer drop below 50°F.
- Calcium Salt to the planting hole helps with calcium uptake and aids in the prevention of future problems like blossom end rot.
- When planting, install cages or stakes for support to prevent root disturbance later on.
- Plants require between six and eight hours of full sunlight each day.
- At planting, pinch off the lowest two sets of branches and bury the stem close to the lowest remaining stems. This helps to promote more root growth.
- Pinch out suckers as they appear. Suckers are the small secondary branches that appear in the “V” between the main branches and the stem. Removing them directs energy into fruit production.
- Once flowers begin to set, feed every two weeks with a balanced fertilizer.
- Fruits typically ripen in 70 to 80 days.
