Watering tomatoes

Irrigation of freshly sown tomatoes

Irrigation of tomatoes is essential to develop strong and lush plants. In the seedbed we will often have to wet the earth without soaking it. To ensure that the humidity is retained longer in the earthen ball, the seedbed can be covered with a little cling film for food. In this way we will recreate a sort of miniature greenhouse where the seeds will germinate more easily. After a couple of weeks the seedling will sprout and we will leave it in the small container a little longer, at least until we are sure that the winter frosts are over. We will always have to irrigate the plant without exaggerating, otherwise we will get a plant that as an adult will develop many leaves but few fruits. When we plant it, we will generously wet the ground to favor the

Watering of developed plants


The tomato plant with at least 2 leaves in addition to the germination ones can be planted. In the event that you want to grow tomatoes in pots, you can simply proceed by placing the plant with its stick inside the new container, a pot of at least 40cm in diameter. It will be necessary to bathe generously without creating puddles. To facilitate the drainage of water, you can insert balls of expanded clay on the bottom of the vase or pebbles. It is not recommended to use saucers. During the flowering phase, irrigation will be significantly increased to favor generous fruiting. To keep the moisture in the soil it might be useful to mulch, that is to put some natural material at the base of the plant, such as grass clippings and bark.

Irrigation and land


The ideal soil for tomato cultivation is loose and with excellent drainage. It will also need to be enriched beforehand, in the digging phase. We will work the earth for at least 40cm deep and we will remove the clods. If necessary, we will also add some well-decomposed natural compost to the fertilizer. We will then let the rainy season wet the earth and absorb the nutrients necessary for the development of tomato plants. When we have obtained seedlings of the size of half a meter, we can begin the tamping work, which consists in adding more soil to the base of the plant. This can be done by simply taking soil from the garden or adding universal soil. The tamping will be repeated a ‘ another time during the development of the plant. New roots will grow and tomato growth will be stimulated.

Watering Tomatoes: How To Do It The Right Way


The tomato is a fairly resistant plant, which is not afraid of atmospheric precipitation and which also bears short periods of drought. However, it should not be left dry for too long and we must always ensure a sufficient water supply. To fight the parasites that can attack our tomato, you can use a natural decoction of herbs to add to normal irrigation. If, on the other hand, rot is noticed, we will limit the watering operations. Even if we notice a yellowing of the leaves starting from the lower antlers, we will not have to worry particularly. It is normal, in fact, during the flowering phase and subsequent fruiting, for the plant to be more demanding both in terms of water and nutrition. An additional fertilization, generously wetting the plant,
