Sowing

  • Being very easy to grow, Cherry tomatoes can be sown throughout the year.
  • For sowing take a seedling tray with medium sized cells & drainage holes at the bottom.
  • Fill the seedling tray with a growing medium. Ideal growing medium for cherry tomatoes is Coco Peat if you are growing them indoors and Fine Soil if you are growing them outdoors.
  • Hold the Cherry Tomato seeds in your left palm & sow 2-3 seeds per cell/cup.
  • Do not sow cherry tomato seeds in too deep.
  • Place your seeds on the surface of the medium and use the inside with the tip of a pencil and cover the surface with coco peat ensuring that the seeds are covered.
  • Alternately, you can also make shallow depressions in the medium using the back of a pencil and put your seeds inside these depressions and cover them up with coco peat.
  • Keep the seedling tray indoors till the seeds germinate.
  • Provide 2 tablespoons of water every day to the seeds. Of you can also keep the seed tray in another tray full of water for half an hour so that the water will be absorbed by the seed cells from the bottom, via drainage holes.
  • To encourage germination, place the seed tray in a box or cover it with paper for first 4-5 days.
  • If seeds are planted outdoors on seed beds, protect them from heavy rainfall or direct sunlight.
  • Cover your seed bed by making a temporary roof of a plastic sheet. Water it in the form of a light shower using a watering can.
Fill the cells/cups with a moist coco-peat medium

Caring

  • Cherry tomato seeds will germinate within 6 - 8 days and tiny sprouts will be visible at this stage.
  • Once seeds germinate, put the tray in an open partially sunny spot near the window. Don’t cover the tray anymore.
  • Second week onwards your seedlings will start growing into a plant. At this stage expose the seedling tray to more sunlight to encourage leaf growth.
  • Keep one seedling per hole and cut off the smaller seedlings using a pair of scissors.
  • Four weeks after sowing your seeds, your seedlings will be ready for transplantation.
  • You can transplant the seedlings to container pots or raised beds.
  • Ideal planting mixture for Cherry Tomato seedlings is2 part garden soil & 1 part organic manure OR part garden soil, 1 part coco-peat & 1 part Vermicompost.
  • Transplant the seedling along with root ball of a medium.
  • Cherry Tomato seedlings can be transplanted deeper into the planting mixture. This will encourage root formation.
  • Plant the seedlings minimum 2 feet apart (60x60 or 60x45 cm) from each other on raised beds. Plant only single seedling at the centre of a single regular 8-12 inch pot.
  • Before transplanting the seedling, use a good quality organic manure in the soil with 2:1 ratio. Organic fertilizer can be well rotten cow dung manure, farmyard manure, compost or vermicompost.
  • Make sure your cherry tomato plant is receiving sufficient sunlight. Cherry Tomatoes require full sunlight.
  • Cherry Tomatoes are weak trailing plants. They need trellis for support, particularly at the fruiting stage. You can use locally available material like bamboo, wood sticks, wires, tapes, ropes to make trellis of your own.
  • Cherry tomato plants will start flowering at the beginning of month 3.
  • CherryTomatoes can be harvested 60-70 from the sowing of seeds & harvesting season can continue for next 3 months or so.
Hold the seeds and sow 2-3 seeds per cell/cup. Since Lavender seeds are small in size, do not sow them deep
