THINNING &
TRANSPLANTING: When seedlings are about 2 inches tall, thin or individually pot indoor seedlings 3 inches apart. Plant outdoors in late spring after all danger of frost has passed and weather has
warmed considerably.

Ed's Special Advice

Plant in full sun. If possible, against a south or west wall or fence, where sun reflection will provide additional heat Black plastic at base of plant! or a lire placed on the soil around each plant also will provide heal for earlier ripening. Tomatoes prefer rich soil kept moderately moist. Fertilize monthly if necessary and avoid sprayingfoliage when watering. The taller indeterminate varieties in the mix will require some staking or caging.
