    7 hours of good sun, water daily but dont allow the soil to be soggy, a little tomato root fertilizer early on, but mid season, start pinching off the extra shoots growing in the forks of stems so more energy goes to the fruit. When transplanting to larger pot sizes early on, bury to the base of the bottom leaves for extra root production and pinch off those 2 leaves.

    Make sure they are getting the proper water. Regularly prune off smaller, unhealthy tomatoes and non-blooming branches so that the energy of the plant goes to growing better fruit.

    Make sure you mulch around the plants to try to keep moisture around the plant. They don't like to get dry. Keep them watered regularly, but not too much or too seldom.
