SELWYN TIMES Latest Christchurch news at www.star.kiwi 39 Gardening gardening without guesswork Question: Is now a good time to plant Tomatoes? November is a great time Answer: to plant tomatoes outside, as the weather is more settled now. Prepare the ground 2 to 3 weeks before planting. Dig in good compost and remove any weeds. While you are there, check that the soil is not too dry. The best site to grow tomatoes is one that has plenty of sun, shelter from cold winds, and access to a good water supply (but has good drainage too). Tomatoes are gross feeders, meaning they will need a lot of nutrients through the growing season. At planting time, incorporate fertilisers such as Intelligro Tomato Fertiliser or Nitrophoska. Hold on to the fertiliser, you will need this through the season. Place the supporting stakes in the ground before planting, and tie the stems to the stakes. Once rapid growth has started they must not get stressed so need to have regular watering and be tied to the stake to keep the stems straight. Laterals must be removed as soon as they are able to be handled to encourage flower development.
