Sun: Tomato seedlings will need strong direct sunlight to develop properly, use precautions to avoid scorching and sunburn.
Water: Tomatoes are about the watering! Skimp on adding compost, organic fertilizers and the rest, but if you want good tomatoes it's about the water. A daily supply of water is essential for proper development and tomato production.
Planting Depth: 0.25 - 0.75 inches
Soil: Loose, organic, somewhat sandy soil that is well draining is the best for tomatoes. Amend soil with compost to increase available nutrients, yield, and planting density.
Soil Preparation
: Tomatoes love heat. Cover the planting area with black or red plastic a couple of weeks before you intend to plant. Those extra degrees of warmth will translate into earlier tomatoes. (Mulch after the ground has had a chance to warm up. Mulching does conserve water and prevents the soil and soil borne diseases from splashing up on the plants, but if you put it down too early it will also shade and therefore cool the soil.)

Soil pH: Optimal soil pH is 6.0 to 6.5, however, slight variations are acceptable.
Plant Spacing: Grower preference, leave enough room for the branches to spread without becoming tangled with other plants in your garden.
Row Spacing: Grower preference. Leaving enough room to allow access between the plants for watering, weeding, and other chores is a good rule of thumb.
Hardiness: Tomatoes are actually perennials in tropical climates, but gardeners in temperate climates grow them as warm season, frost-tender annuals. Tomato foliage is damaged by frost and freezing temperatures will kill the plant. Most varieties will not set fruit if nighttime temperatures fall below 50º F (10º C) or if daytime temperature stay above 90º F (32 ºC).
Know your type
: As the name suggests, Determinates have vines that grow to a determined point and stop, making them more compact and bushy (They are sometimes listed as bush tomatoes). Indeterminates are more vine-y than determinates; their vines continue to grow and need support. Determinates tend to be early; indeterminates are a good bet for later fruit. Specialties have varying growth habits and may display characteristics of both types.

Planting Instructions: Start seed indoors in a sunny location 6 weeks prior to warm weather. Transplant outdoors in full sun when seedlings display 4-6 leaves and weather is warm. Seed can be sown directly into garden when soil is warm. Tomatoes cannot tolerate frost. To keep fruit clean and easier to pick, support plants with stakes or cages. Tomatoes require at least an inch of water per week.
Additional Information: Features: Technically, the tomato is a berry, defined as a fruit that does not split open and is fleshy except for the multiple seeds within and the dry skin on the outside. Legally, however, the US Supreme Court has decreed that the tomato is a vegetable (for purposes of commerce and government regulations)! The nightshade family includes many other important vegetables, such as chili and bell peppers (Capsicum spp.); Irish potato (Solanum tuberosum); eggplant (Solanum melonga); and tomatillo (Physalis ixocarpa); and some poisonous ones such as tobacco (Nicotiana tabacum); and deadly nightshade (Solanum dulcamara); (not to mention supermarket tomatoes.) Potatoes are so closely related to tomatoes that they can be grafted onto each other.
