Hello
I have a lot of tomato plants so I will be transferring them to the outdoors soon. I was wondering should I make a shelter for them with some timber and clear plastic or would they be okay on their own outside.
All opinions welcome.
Thanks
Alan Fletcher

Almost certainly, Alan, protect them from our winds. I tried the first two years we were here and just watched the leaves curl up and the blossom drop off. Haven't bothered since.

We have put tomatoes outside in the drills on bamboo canes for the last two years. No problems at all and got a good crop. But different to Blowin we are well sheltered here with tall trees.

Mine have been grown outside with no problems for the last few years. Would not put out before night time temperatures are about 10C or higher , so another month usually.
