I grow cherry tomatoes from seed, when you put your seeds in, within about 2wks they would have been ready to pot on into 3in pots, my tomatoe plans are half way up my greenhouse sides and there are loads of flowers on them.

they need potting on Norrms 3" pots are to small theyshould be in at least 6 to 9 inch pots by now or buy a grow bag and put three per grow bag straight in.
