The How to grow Roma Tomatoes videos
The first 4 weeks
Roma tomatoes are the ideal ingredient for Italian recipes and great for making items like Passata, Tomato Paste, etc.
However, if you’ve ever tried to buy them fresh then you will know they are virtually impossible to get. But they are very easy to grow at home.
My very first video (4 weeks after sowing) shows 2 ways to grow them from seed
- In soil in the garden, and
- Using hydroponics on a bedroom window sill.
I will be adding updated video’s every 4 weeks.

How to grow Roma Tomatoes at home
This Roma tomato is the ultimate mid season Tomato. It has a perfect flavour, perfect pear shaped 3″ fruits, all beautifully red.
You will find the plants grow on vigorous determinate vines producing a heavy mid-season crop.
If planting outside grow on under cooler conditions and when about 8 inches tall,
- Either plant in their growing position in the greenhouse
- Or gradually acclimatise them to outdoor conditions
And then plant out 18 inches apart in a warm and sunny spot in moist, fertile well drained soil and keep watered.
Or you can grow them indoors all year round using hydroponics & specialised light
