Short Season Tomatoes - How to Grow

For Ultra-Early Tomatoes, Start Tomato Seeds Indoors!
Starting tomato seeds indoors about 4-6+ weeks before the last frost helps get them growing before transplanting outdoors. You'd be surprised, but as they grow, transplanting them larger pots will help them continue to grow quickly – plants of the same age can be widely different in size if one tomato plant is kept in smaller pot and one is transplanted into a larger pot. Also, getting them into the ground once it's warmed up also helps kick-start their growing. Remove the bottom leaves, and bury the stems as deep as possible so they get a great root system – notice  all those bumps on the stem? Those are roots waiting to happen!). You can also use hoop houses or water-walls to keep your tomatoes warm during late spring cold spells and heat up the soil so they grow faster.

Do you get a lot of green tomatoes at the end of the season?
Grow these ultra-early tomato plants and you'll have more red tomatoes before the cold sets in come in the autumn. Check out our top favorite varieties of fast-growing short season tomato seeds, and find our fastest growing peppers »
