Tomato Grow-A-Long

In this video we are starting our Tomato seeds. Tomatoes need to be kept above 5C so you may need to sow and grow them indoors initially. To help prevent leggy seedlings (leggy Linda’s) you can create a simple foil reflector.

Tomato Pollination

A a well-ventilated location is essential for successful pollination. Tomatoes are self-pollenated. You need low humidity, gentle breeze and insects buzzing around. You can help things along by gently tapping or shaking flowers to aid pollen drop and setting. That’s what the insects are doing, gently loosening the pollen so it drops. However, if conditions are allowed to boil over in the greenhouse, the pollen will get wet and too sticky to drop.
