Growing Tomatoes from Seed

Sow tomato seeds indoors under a thin covering of media, 8 weeks before your local last frost date. Seed may be thickly sown and separated out into separate containers after true leaves have appeared between the initial cotyledons, or sown individually in 2-4″ containers from the beginning.  Bright light is essential for proper development, and some mechanical movement (such as a fan) is beneficial.
