Tomatoes are a fruit or vegetable either is correct.To plant you dig a sall hole 1/4 of an inch deep by seed.Already growing plants need excluding pot 2/3 of the stem buried for better root system and more support.You should pluck off the first flower buds to allow the plants to streghthen up.It will not make flowers for quite a while after that.If you don't take suckers off you actually get more tomatoes.A cage, trellis, or stake is required for harder chance of disease and more suport.Determinates don't need as much support as indeterminates because the plant is short and bushy.Keep well watered and in lots of sun for best results.Happy gardening!:D

Tomatoes remind me alot of an apple tree. If u don't stake the tree when it is first planted and give it care, it'll die. But if u take care of it right, than it will grow big and strong. Alot like a tomato plant i'll say.

I noticed you said to keep well watered. I have found that the less I water tomatoes the better. When I was watering them regularly, they would get huge and bust open from too much moisture. I'm in NW Ohio and they seem to like it hot and drier. Just my experience. Happy growing. I will be starting seeds tomorrow on my porch before they go to the garden.
