You forgot to help you save seeds from very last year’s yummy Cherokee Purple heirloom tomato plant? There wasn’t time to sow Yellow Brandywine seeds on your windowsill?
No dilemma. Tomatomania! — the yearly spring pop-up sale of tomato seedlings — is returning to Los Angeles for spring.
The touring series will function hundreds of heirloom and hybrid tomato types as properly as this sort of accessories as pots, fertilizer and plant stakes.
If you want to take your time and investigate the unique plant versions, organizer Scott Daigre endorses arriving in early afternoon when factors are a little quieter. That way, backyard gardeners can “take their time to glance by means of the selection and discuss intently with the Tomatomaniacs on employees,” Daigre explained.
