The proper planting of tomatoes is of crucial importance for their development, so if you pay attention to the technique, you will have lots of them in the summer.
If you follow the tips we provide in this article, you will definitely taste the most delicious, sun-warmed, fresh tomatoes from your own garden.
Tomatoes are in fact very easy to grow and give a lot of produce. Yet, they love heat and cannot tolerate frost.
This is how to properly plant a tomato and have 508ft tomato plants the next season:
First, you need to purchase a tomato plant, which you will later transplant in your garden. If you have experience in this, you can also start it from a seed. Then, start the seed in a greenhouse or a sunny window indoors a month before setting them out in the garden.
Then, place the transplants in the sunniest areas of the garden. Tomatoes need to receive at least 7 hours of sun daily. The tomatoes should be planted ft apart. Dig a large hole, about 2ft, as the plant should be entirely into the soil.
Then, add fish heads in the hole. You can find some at the butcher’s, at a fishmonger, or in a restaurant. Yet, if you cannot find heads, you can also use spines, tails, guts, as well as crab, lobster, and shrimp shells.
You can also substitute all this with 2 handfuls of fish meal. Then, you should also add 2 aspirins, which will boost the immune system of the plant, and 3-4 crushed chicken egg shells, as they have calcium, which helps the rotting of the blossom end.
