Transplanting Tomatoes

Great tip for moving your tomatoes from your AeroGarden to your outdoor soil garden.

When transplanting tomatoes into dirt, you can bury them deep. Tomatoes will root anywhere along the stem that come into contact with moist soil. When transplanting from the AeroGarden or from pots, you can trim the lowest leaves from a tomato and bury it deep, with just top leaves above ground. While your tomato just got shorter, it will grow back quickly and develop a more robust root system as a result.

Before planting your seedlings, we recommend placing Miracle-Gro Quick Start Planting Tablets at the bottom of the fiber pots. These tablets are guaranteed to help provide the proper amount of nutrition to your starter plants and transplants for the first 30 days. You could also give Miracle-Gro Quick Start Planting and Transplant Starting Solution a try. Simply mix this liquid concentrate with water and apply to your transplants or seedlings once they are planted. The solution not only stimulates root growth for faster blooms compared to unfed plants, but also it helps prevent transplant shock.
