Preparing the containers
Before planting the tomato seeds in the containers, adequate preparations are in order. The potting soil needs to be dampened. This should be just an easy procedure that involves adding some water to the soil and working it thoroughly. The water should be added until the soil mix feels well compressed in the hand. However, don’t wait until it gets dripping wet. It should be in a way that it starts breaking apart when poked with a finger. Then, carefully fill the pots with the soil and form the soil gently until it is just an inch or so from the top.
