If you live in Australia’s temperate climates, you can sow your tomato seedlings in late winter (August) – by starting them indoors! It’s in the list of Autumn garden tasks in my gardening calendar!
Starting your tomato seedlings early is a great way to get a good head start of a few weeks before spring arrives. By the time the weather is suitable for planting out the seedlings, you’ll have nice strong plants that will better survive pests and inclement weather!
For step-by-step instructions on starting tomatoes indoors in late winter, see my article: Starting Annual Vegetable Seedlings Indoors
Why wait for the warm weather when you can start now!
