Your Guide to Growing Delicious Tomatoes at Home

Master gardener Jason Johns shares his love for and knowledge of growing this popular, savory fruit

By Jason Johns
Book Publishing Company

The book has been updated since its original publication. It is currently released in the US this month but will be in the UK late February. The author is English.

This in-depth guide teaches you how to:

select the best seeds and seedlings
grow tomatoes in beds, containers, or greenhouses
nurture your plants so they produce an abundant crop
choose companion plants
prevent pests and diseases
store and preserve your tomatoes to use later in the season
make salsa, gazpacho, and other favorite tomato dishes
Growing your own tomatoes is an incredibly rewarding experience. If you follow Jason’s guidance, you’ll be guaranteed a healthy tomato harvest you can enjoy all season long.

Although there are many different varieties of tomatoes, there are just four different types, which relate to the size of the fruit and the growing pattern of the plants. All of the different varieties fall
into one of these five types.

Classic (salad) tomatoes

These are the tomatoes you’re most familiar with and see most often in supermarkets. They’re the classic red, round tomatoes that can be used fresh in salads and for baking, frying, grilling, and other cooked dishes. Classic tomatoes are the most common varieties grown at home, and there’s a huge range from which to choose.
