Re: winter tomato growing

Growing tomatoes inside can be tricky. You can grow some patio type tomatoes like ‘Princess of the Patio’ inside. You need to plant them in containers and use a good quality potting soil. You can grow under florescent lights, keep the lights on 16 hours a day and keep the lights within four inches of the top of the plant. Since there are no bees you will have to hand pollinate the flowers.
