Sow indoors 1 to 2 cm deep, 2 to 3 months before transplanting outside. After seedlings have set 2 sets of true leaves transplant to small containers until plant is established. It is now safe to transplant it once more to its finally home. Containers work well for many tomaotoes, allowing them to be moved in inclement weather. Does very well in greenhouses but not required. Outdoor sowing requires direct sowing after last frost and thin to suit your space. Good drainage. Full Sun (6 to 8 hours) and even moisture are recommended for best results. Staking is recommended as Indigo Rose is a bountiful producer.
