From tomato seed to seedling

It is nice to save your own tomato seeds but you have to make the best with them.

Prepare a nice seed compost by mixing 1 part horticultural sand, 1 part grit, 1 part old compost (at least one year old), 1 part light top soil. You can as well buy some good seed compost ( sowing : John Innes Compost) .

Fill a tray and sow your seeds.

Water well, cover with cling film.

You need 20 degrees celsius to germinate tomatoes.

It will take five to 12 days.

Three weeks after the germination you can start to plant the small seedlings into small modules.

They need around 15 degrees celsius.
