Looking for tomato plants?
Buying tomato plants locally is nice, because you can personally examine the plants before you buy it. But the problem is that most local nurseries and certainly most of the big box stores only carry a limited variety of live tomato plants.
So where does that leave you? If you want a better variety of tomato plants to grow in your own garden, you have a couple of options.
1. You can start your own tomato plants from seed. If you like to start from seed, check out all of the cool tomato seeds available at Seed Savers Exchange, a nonprofit founded in 1975. Really great selection, and you are helping a nonprofit!
2. You can buy tomato plants online and have them shipped to you.
I like The Tasteful Garden. They are a Top 5 rated mail order business on the Garden Watchdog site for vegetable plants, which gives them credibility.
Check out the French Marmara hybrid tomato plant, which is especially easy to grow, disease resistant, and very tasty.
You’ll also find plenty of heirloom tomato plants, as well as black tomatoes, slicers, orange, yellow and gold tomatos, and a variety of cherry and grape tomato plants for sale.
