Tomato seed is best planted from spring to early summer at a depth of 6mm, with plants spaced at 80cm apart in a full sun position. For optimal germination of tomato seed, ensure your soil is between 18°C and 30°C and kept moist at all times. Tomato seeds can be direct seeded (where your plant to grow them) after the danger of frost has past, or started indoors in late winter or early spring and potted up into larger pots as the plant grows and then planted out into the veggie garden after the danger of frost has passed.
