How To Jump Start Tomato Plants – 5 Simple Secrets To Get Tomato Plants Growing Fast! 

Starting tomato plants early can boost their yield and speed up growth. Here are five easy ways to grow tomato plants quickly:  

Start with healthy tomato seedlings from a reputable nursery or indoor seeds. Choose robust seedlings with stout stems and bright green foliage. Avoid leggy seedlings, which may struggle to grow.  

1. Start with Healthy Seedlings

Tomatoes love warm, sunny, well-draining soil. A planting site should receive 6-8 hours of direct sunlight daily. Healthy root development requires organic matter-rich, well-drained soil.  

2. Provide Ideal Growing Conditions  

Carefully put seedlings into the garden to avoid injuring their delicate roots. Plant the seedling gently up to the first true leaves in a hole somewhat larger than the root ball. Plant base soil should be firm and watered.  

3. Transplant Carefully

Organic mulch like straw or crushed leaves around tomato plants conserves soil moisture, suppresses weeds, and regulates soil temperature. Keep tomato soil wet but not soggy by watering regularly.   

4. Mulch and Water Consistently

As heavy feeders, tomatoes need frequent fertilizer to grow and produce fruit. Prepare the soil with compost or old manure before planting. Next, feed tomato plants a balanced or tomato-specific fertilizer every 4-6 weeks during the growing season.   

5. Feed Regularly
