How to Grow Tomato at Home

  • Choose the tomato according to the amount of space available to grow them.
  • Grow tomatoes in a cage if you have space in the garden.
  • If space is limited, use a pole to stake the plant for support as it grows tall.
  • Tomatoes that grow tall deliver higher yielding crops.
  • Tomato plants do not like their leaves wet, as this can cause mildew.
  • Water the plants at the base, not the leaves.
  • Tomatoes are prone to insect attacks and other diseases if over watered.
  • Use mulch to cover the soil around the tomato plants, this can prevent soil borne diseases from infecting the tomato leaves.
