starting tomatoes

clinchbilly(6)May 13, 2014

Im have trouble with getting my tomatoes seeds to germintate. I tried using a float bed system the type used to start tobacco plants. My seeds either didnt come up or died shortly after. So i had to buy all my plants.
Im not ready to give up yet. I want to start some late tomato plants..........any advice, hate to buy more plants after ive already got seeds.

First, read the How to grow tomatoes from seed FAQ here (just click on the blue FAQ button near the top of the forum front page). Then check out the Growing from Seed forum here for even more info on all the basics of potting mix, containers, watering, lighting, air circulation, etc.
