Summer plants: plant out after last frost in April or May


Tomato plants are sold in individual 3.5" biodegradable peat pots.  Peat pots can be planted in the ground to avoid root disturbance, but I recommend tearing strips down the side and bottom of the pot to allow roots to grow quickly out into soil.


Space plants 18-24" apart.  Support is strongly recommended.
