How to water your tomatoes

Water at the base of a tomato plant.

The best time to water your tomatoes is at the base of the plant. Watering at this point will help keep your soil moist, which prevents disease and encourages strong growth. Watering near the top of your tomato plants can also encourage diseases like blossom end rot or fruit rot. If you want to give your plants a break from all that water, consider putting them in a container as soon as they finish blooming; this will prevent evaporation while still allowing you access to their roots for watering and fertilizing during dry seasons (when it’s especially important).

Avoid wetting foliage when possible.

When possible, it’s best to avoid watering the foliage. Watering the foliage can cause excessive water loss from leaves and flowers and may lead to unsightly wilting or browning of leaves. If you must water your plants, do so at least once a week in warm weather (watering more frequently during hot spells) or twice a week in colder months.

If you’re watering when the sun is out but there’s no wind blowing around—such as when watering from overhead—try not to wet any part of your plant that isn’t directly beneath where you’re standing: this includes all stems up until their tips; also keep in mind that raindrops will fall off any part of a plant before they hit ground level

Water deeply but infrequently.

Watering deeply but infrequently is the best way to ensure your tomato plant has enough water to produce fruit. If you water too often, the roots can rot and the tomato plant won’t be able to grow as deep into its root zone. If you don’t provide enough moisture for your plants, they will not be able to produce fruit properly and may even die back completely.

Keep soil moist, but not too wet.

It is important to water your tomatoes early in the day, when the soil is dry. Watering at night can cause root rot and other problems. If you want to water your plants every day, you should only do so as soon as they are no longer actively growing (usually once they are fully developed). A good rule of thumb is that if it’s cool outside and not raining or snowing then that’s a good time for watering!

If you water tomatoes properly, your plants will thrive and produce lots of delicious tomatoes for you to enjoy.
