Planting tips for Yellow Window Box Cherry Tomato
Sow seeds indoors 6-8 weeks before the last frost in the spring for the earliest harvest, maintaining a soil temperature of 75 degrees. Shift hardened seedlings to the garden shortly after the last frost. Grow in the full sun. Water regularly at ground level and fertilize the plants when they are 6″ tall and again in mid-summer. Pick the fruit carefully when they are full-colored and firm but before they begin to soften.
Tomatoes grow well with asparagus, basil, beans, carrots, celery, chives, cucumber, garlic, head lettuce, marigold, mint, nasturtium, onion, parsley, peas, peppers and marigold. Basil will repel flies and mosquitoes from your tomato plants while also improving the growth and flavor. Beebalm, chives and mint will improve the health and flavor of your tomatoes. Keep potatoes, fennel, dill, cabbage and cauliflower away from your tomato plants.
