Horticulturalist and SIUC professor John Preece demonstrates how to transplant and grow healthy vine-ripened tomatoes that will add great color and taste to your summer dinner table. He explains that each tomato plant should be approximately 6 x 6 inches in size before transplanting. First, you should remove the limbs closest to the roots, then dig a hole or trench that will accommodate each plant’s size. Second, you should break up the roots before planting them, so they have room to spread. After the transplant is complete, each plant should be watered and fertilized with organic or inorganic water-soluble fertilizer.
