    How do you pick the best tomato transplants at the garden center?

    Look for stocky plants 6-8 inches tall with no yellow or brown leaves. The leaves should be gloriously green with no signs of disease. Don’t select plants that are already flowering or fruiting either. You want them to develop a strong root system in your yard first. When you get them home, gradually introduce them to growing conditions in your garden.

    You need to be sure the plants you purchase are good for your area. What grows well in Florida, may not do so well in Maine and garden centers sometimes have plants that are not suitable for the climate. Try online sources too after you research to find best plants for your area.
