How To Grow Beefsteak Tomatoes From Seed: Marmande Tomato seeds can be sown indoors in pots or seedling modules as early as March. They can be planted directly outside in pots from Late April onwards.

Sow 1 seed in each cell/pot. When the seedlings get to about 8cm tall, they can be replanted into larger pots. Tomatoes need heat, and do best in greenhouses. If growing them outside, put them in a warm, sunny area of the garden. Do not put them uncovered outside until all frost risk has passed.

Tomato plants will need to be supported by a stake or something similar, to help the plant grow upwards and bear the fruit. Harvest the tomatoes as they ripen, this will encourage the plant to produce more fruit.
