How to Grow tomatoes
Start seeds indoors 8-12 weeks before the last expected spring frost in your area. Plant your seeds about 1/4 inches deep in container with premixed soil. Keep soil moist. Tomatoes usually germinate in 7-10 days.
After seedlings have a set of first true leaves, transplant them into bigger pots and deeper into the soil so that only true leaves are above the ground. This encourages seedlings to develop more roots along the buried stem.
Transplant seedlings into larger containers later if you feel that the old pots are too small, i.e. if you see that roots fill up all the pot and start grow out from the bottom holes.
After all frost dangers are past, transplant the rooted seedlings outside into prepared sunny spot in the garden. Again plant them deep into the soil so that only leaves are above the ground - it will give the tomato plant opportunity to grow more roots along the buried stem.
Water seedlings thoroughly and regularly throughout the season. Stake tomato plants when they start bearing to a) support the plant and b) prevent fruits touching the ground, which may cause soil-borne rot diseases.
