I didn't tell you this when it happened but I killed ALL my tomato seedlings on May. Not on purpose of course. At that time I thought that the weather was very nice and it was sunny and quite warm, so I took the seedligs out on the terrace to replant them. Big mistake! All the plants died of cold. In a few hours after the replanting most of the plants droop sadly in their pots, on the next day even the rest started to droop. I wanted to be hopefull and waited for a few days for the miracle that they would perk up. But that didn't happen and I had to throw the plants away. So sad.
Instead of sowing new seeds I bought the plants. They were only couple euros per plant, makes me wonder if it's worthwile going through all the trouble of sowing the seeds, taking care of the seedlings and replanting them many times. On the other hand it's fun to watch things grow.
They were still in their small plastic pots. I had only bought four tomato plants, last year I had eight (if I remember correctly) and our conservatory was filled with tomatoes. That was a bit too much, so I thought four would be better.
I dug out four metal pots for the tomatoes, filled the bottom with LECA gravel and added soil and some fertilizer. Then planted the tomatoes.
These tomatoes should grow pretty tall and I had bit of problem how I would support the tomatoes when they grow larger. I figured I could hung ropes from the conservatory ceiling and tie the tomatoes on those ropes.
The ropes hang from a chain where I have hung lanterns on the winter time. I've had that chain there for quite some time.
I actually have no idea if that rope system was a wise thing to do or not, I guess I will see it in near future. So far it's working.
