Tomato plants trained on a twine trellis with beetroot plants filling in the space around the roots.


Young tomato plants showing the twine trellis that will support them as they grow.

Tomatoes are grown easily from seed in small containers filled with perlite, or the seedlings can be obtained directly from a garden store. As soon as the seedlings are large enough to handle they should be planted out in benches containing a shallow layer of growth medium. Since the plants grow very tall I have built a special bench for tomatoes which is at ground level.
