    • Soil: Choose a location with well-draining, fertile soil that is rich in organic matter. The ideal pH range for tomatoes is between 6.0 and 6.8.

    • Sunlight: Tomatoes require full sun to grow and produce fruit, so choose a spot that gets at least 6-8 hours of direct sunlight per day.

    • Planting: Start your seeds indoors 6-8 weeks before your last frost date. Transplant the seedlings outdoors after all danger of frost has passed and the soil has warmed up. Space the plants 18-36 inches apart in rows that are 3-4 feet apart.

    • Watering: Tomatoes need regular watering, especially during hot, dry weather. Water deeply once or twice a week, making sure the soil stays consistently moist but not waterlogged.

    • Fertilizing: Tomatoes are heavy feeders, so it's important to provide them with regular fertilization. Use a balanced fertilizer at planting time, and then switch to a high-nitrogen fertilizer once the plants start setting fruit.

    • Pruning: Pinch off the suckers that form in the crotch between the main stem and side branches, and remove any leaves that touch the ground.

    • Pest and disease control: Watch for common tomato pests like aphids, whiteflies, and tomato hornworms, and treat them with insecticidal soap or bacillus thuringiensis. Keep an eye out for diseases like early blight and blossom end rot, and take preventive measures like using mulch and avoiding overhead watering.
