Growing your own tomatoes is easy, and just a few plants will provide you with plenty of delicious tomatoes all summer long. Sow your tomato seeds indoors, then grow them outside in a sunny, sheltered spot or in a greenhouse. There's a wide variety to try, from tiny sweet cherry tomatoes to full-flavored giant steaks.

How do you start tomatoes from seed?
Tomatoes typically grow in two different ways.
Cordon (or indeterminate) tomatoes grow tall, up to 1.8m (6 feet), and need support
Shrubby (or determinate) tomatoes are shorter and denser and do not need to be put up for sampling
Check the seed packet or plant label before purchase to ensure you get the right type for your growing space.
Tomatoes are easy to grow from seeds sown indoors in warm conditions. If you plan to grow your plants outdoors, sow your seeds in late March to early April. If you will be growing tomatoes in a greenhouse, you can start seeds earlier, from late February to mid-March.
Germination is the first step in making a plant, when the seeds split open to form roots, then stems, then leaves, at which point it can be called a seedling. If conditions are right, tomato seeds will usually germinate within 5 to 10 days. You'll know the seeds have germinated when you see the green plants growing out of the growing medium. It's a time to celebrate.
The germination rate of a packet of tomato seeds depends on the source and age of the seeds. This can be referred to as seed viability. Typically, the older the seeds, the lower the germination rate and the less vigorous they are. Increase your chances of getting the number of tomato plants you need by planting 25% or more seeds. Some may not germinate, but you will still have what you need.
If you are having trouble germinating your tomato seeds, temperature may be the problem. The ideal temperature for germination is 70-80 degrees Fahrenheit. Temperatures well below 70 degrees will result in slow germination, and if the temperature is well below 70 degrees, germination may not occur at all. Likewise, temperatures well above 80 degrees can cause germination to fail. If you need to raise the temperature, a plant heating pad is a good helper.
Planters are plastic, metal, ceramic (including terracotta) or biodegradable containers with drainage holes in the bottom. They typically range in diameter from 5 to 90 cm (2 in. to 3 ft.), but 7.5 to 15 cm (3 to 5 in.) are most commonly used for growing and sowing seeds on plants (although seed trays and seed trays (short pots) are also used for seeds).
Seed compost is a free-draining compost that is formulated specifically for seed germination. It usually contains a mixture of fine materials, including sterile loam, coir fiber, coarse sand, coarse sand or perlite. It contains low levels of nutrients (high levels
may damage young seedlings).
The tomato seeds are composted and then placed in a propagator or covered with a clear plastic bag for each pot and placed on a bright windowsill.
A seedling is a young plant grown from tomato seed. Seedlings need to be kept at about 18°C (64°F). When two true leaves have formed, transplant into a 9 cm (3.5 in.) pot.
If you don't have the space or time to grow from seed, seedlings can be obtained from the garden center in the spring. However, they still need frost-free conditions and hardening before they can be planted outdoors.
