Tomatoes can be a tricky plant to grow, but nothing compares to the taste of a juicy red tomato that you grew yourself. Whether you’re an experienced gardener or just getting started, tomatoes are well worth including in any garden. Because tomatoes are prone to a few issues, it’s best to understand the process and pick up some tips so that you can grow the perfect tomatoes.


1. Don’t crowd the seedlings

When starting your plants from seed, make sure to give each seedling plenty of room to grow. Usually, this means thinning the seeds to one strong plant per pot. Plant only two or three seeds in each pot and then snip the smaller, weaker growths to ensure only the strongest in the pot survives. Once the best seedlings grow their first true leaves, transfer them into their own larger pots.
