Care Tips/Maintenance

Tidy Treats
Water cherry tomatoes thoroughly but not too often (twice per week should suffice at first increasing to every other day in summer) and try to water early in the day so that plants will dry off before evening. This helps to reduce disease problems. Use drip or soaker hoses whenever possible. Water is used more efficiently this way and the leaves don't get wet.

Cherry tomatoes prefer regular feeding once the fruit sets, but too much early in the season will grow a large plant but with fewer cherry tomatoes. Use slow-release fertilizer at planting time.

Mulching helps ensure an even supply of moisture is available to the plant.
