I've grown my tomato plants from seed as I do every year. They're now about 4 inches tall and very healthy, but must I really wait until they're 8 inches tall like the book says before I move them into my large pots ?



Yes Hank the roots need to grow more before you move them into a bigger pot.

if they are coming out the bottom of the pot they are in then move them on a pot size.

Thanks, I thought you'd say that. I'm just having difficulty curbing my enthusiasm to get my greenhouse and back conservatory all set out with pots and canes etc.
