6. Once the seedlings are around 20cm tall, they can be planted in a grow bag.
Alternatively, for those using seed trays, small pots or egg trays, pot on the seedlings when they’re 10cm tall into an individual 7.5cm pot.

If growing tomatoes on a window sill, turn the pot regularly to prevent them from growing towards the sun.
7. Once in their final position, add a bamboo cane and string to support the plant.
8. Water daily and feed them weekly.
