Level fill a module seed tray firming with the base of another tray. Water well with a fine rose. Sow seeds individually and cover with a 1cm layer of fine compost. Place in a propagator at 18-25c or cover tray with clingfilm and leave in a warm room. Keep moist.
When shoots appear, remove clingfilm. Keep seedlings in a light position, but shade from direct sunlight. When plants have 4-6 leaves transplant to 9cm pots of potting compost. Grow on in a minimum temperature of 15c. Pinch the growing tip to encourage bushy growth.
Plant out into 25cm (10in) containers once roots are beginning to come through the bottom of the 9cm pot. Keep indoors in a greenhouse, on a light windowsill or sunny sheltered patio spot.
Use good quality compost suitable for containers. Water regularly and feed with a liquid tomato fertiliser.
