Tomatoes prefer a warm climate, with ample spacing to encourage high yeilds. Space seedlings 50cm apart once they are large enough to handle. Water regularly to prevent tomatoes splitting or cracking. Do not wet the leaves, watering the soil around the plants helps minimise fungal problems such as blight.
