Ultimate Guide to Growing Tomatoes

Heirloom tomatoesIf you are growing anything on your farm or in your garden, chances are it’s tomatoes. Tomatoes are the favorite child of the growing industry because of their versatility in the field and the kitchen. Growing the perfect tomato is often the ultimate goal of backyard gardeners and large growers alike. While it’s pretty simple to grow a couple decent beefsteaks, growing organic, Cherokee Purple tomatoes is a bit more complicated.

Growers Supply, our sister company, recently set out to improve the lives of tomato growers everywhere with their Ultimate Guide to Growing Tomatoes. In this four-part guide, they take us from seed-starting to pest management through growing organics and heirlooms. Here’s a look at what’s included in the guide:

Part 1: Tomato growing basicsRipe tomatoes

  • Seed starting, transplanting, location

Part 2: Tomato plant care

  • Watering, light, nutrients, growth

Part 3: Tomato troubleshooting

  • Preventing common pests and diseases

Part 4: Beyond basic tomatoes

  • Organic and heirloom tomatoes

Chances are you’re not starting seeds right now (unless you are growing in a controlled environment like a greenhouse), but if your tomatoes aren’t growing as quickly as you expected, try Part 2 on tomato plant care for information on proper nutrients for your tomatoes. Got some tomato hornworms you need to deal with? Check out Part 3 to troubleshoot your plants. Or, maybe you’re having such a wonderful growing season, you want to step up your game next year. Part 4 with tips on growing organics and heirlooms is for you. No matter what kind of grower you are, there is something here for everyone.
