Starting Large Red Cherry Tomato Seeds
If you live in a climate with long winters then you’ll be best to start your tomato seeds indoors at least 6-8 weeks before your last frost date. Always use high quality seed starting soil for germination, do not use garden soil. Good seed starting mix will offer the proper moisture retention while providing proper drainage. Tomato seeds should be planted at a depth of 1/4″ and kept moist until the seedling emerge. Humidity domes, which help retain moisture, are readily available for standard 10″ x 20″ seed starting trays. Starting seeds indoors will require supplemental lighting such as LED or fluorescents, do not rely on light coming in a window. Even a south facing window will result in seedlings that stretch, lean, and become very leggy. Before transplanting seedlings into their final garden destination, care should be taken to harden them off (acclimate to sunlight) to prevent burning the foliage.
