Spring Planting Outdoors


Hello there- What is the best date to plant tomatoes outdoor in the soil this spring it North York, Toronto M2R 2A4?


Thank you for contacting the Toronto Master Gardeners with your gardening inquiry.

As the weather slowly starts to warm up, our thoughts turn to ¬†gardening and we cannot wait to get out and get our hands dirty. However, the key is patience. Tomatos love warm weather, along with 6-8 hours of sunlight. Last season Toronto’s last possible frost date was May 9th.

We receive numerous questions concerning when to plant and how to grow tomatos. If you choose, enter “tomatos” in the search bar located on the right side of our website. This will bring up all of our earlier posts on this topic.
