Did you know, all it takes is a week to have your very own tomatoes growing at home?
Did you also know you could have your tomatoes growing from just a few fresh tomato slices?
We have discovered a neat trick to have you growing an endless supply of juicy tomatoes all year round. This method works best with overripe tomatoes.
What You’ll Need:
- Potting soil or garden mix
- A large container
- Fresh ripe tomatoes
- Fill your container halfway with potting soil – preferably 50% normal garden soil, 30% compost and 20% fine sand for best results.
- Slice your fresh tomatoes about 1/4 inch size per slice.
- Place the tomato slices on the potting mix. Be sure to fill the container with a reasonable amount of slices.
- Cover the tomato slices with a fine layer of potting mix. Make sure you do not cover them with too much soil or have them buried too deep.
- Water, the pot thoroughly, leaving it just moist but not too wet.
- Keep the pot in partial shade and make sure the potting mix is moist at all times by consistently watering it daily.
- After 6-8 days seeds will start to germinate.
- After about 15 days, you can them pull out and replant in your garden or in another container. I’d suggest only plant a maximum of 2-3 seedlings per pot.
Tip: Always use large containers for tomato plants for better tomato yield.
