Learn how to grow your own Tomatoes with this video tutorial. Tomatoes are sub-tropical plants and therefore require a full sun position. This is especially important in most areas of the UK and Ireland where sunlight and warmth are at a premium even in mid-summer. A position against a wall or fence will give an even better chance of success as long as they can receive sufficient water.
Tomato plants grow very well in raised beds, they appreciate the soil conditions which provide moisture without water-logging.
