Growing Tomato

16 Oct 08 Grahame (Australia - temperate climate)
Frank, I used to live in Canberra and the rule of thumb was that you shouldn't plant your tomatoes until you know the winner of the Melbourne Cup. But if you are growing them from seed, you can get them started earlier if you have a nice sunny window sill. Basically, you don;t want the frost to get them so if you do plant them out just keep an eye on the weather and cover them up if it looks like frost.
