Grafted Tomatoes

Tomatoes are a popular purchase at our annual plant sale. We offer both traditional and grafted tomatoes, and the planting instructions are very different.

Since tomatoes will root from the stem, “traditional” tomatoes are planted deeply, to encourage a stronger root system. But if you plant grafted tomatoes too deep, you’ll lose the benefit of the graft.

Jim, our lead grafter, has written a grafted tomato planting guide to help you get the most out of your grafted tomato.
