How to Use
Sow seeds in seed trays or small pots in Dalefoot Wool Compost for Seeds in early to mid-spring.
Seedlings will be ready to transplant when the ‘true’ leaves are formed.
Having chosen your method and growing position water your seedlings well the day before planting.
Growing tomatoes indoors:
Can be either in a greenhouse, polytunnel or sunny conservatory
Plant seedlings in Wool Compost for Tomatoes as a grow bag (2 plants) or fill 20-30cm pots with Wool Compost for Tomatoes.
Grow bags require extra care as they quickly dry out so put an up-turned water bottle with its base cut off as a water reservoir into the top of the bag between the seedlings
Water your tomatoes regularly, preferably in the evening, and consistently to keep the soil or compost moist – this will help avoid blossom end rot and fruits cracking.
Do not feed your tomatoes - Wool Compost for Tomatoes has all the feed your plants need to produce their crop through the season.
Growing tomatoes outdoors:
Harden seedlings off for 10-14 days before permanently planting outside.
Choose your warmest and sunniest outdoor position
Plant seedlings in Wool Compost for Tomatoes as a grow bag (2 plants) or fill 23cm pots with Wool Compost for Tomatoes
