Benefits of planting tomatoes through plastic.
Have you ever planted tomatoes in your garden and they seem to just sit there and not grow much for the first few weeks? Well there is an easy technique used to help jump start the growth of your plants.
Planting tomatoes through plastic can drastically improve growth, yield and speed up the ripening time.
It is also a sustainable and earth friendly practice because the plastic helps retain moisture and drastically reducing evaporation and water waste. The plastic also helps prevent weeds from growing around the plant so herbicides are no longer needed.
Black plastic is the preferred color to use because it absorbs sun rays, heats the soil faster and keeps it warmer, longer. This will help reduce transplant shock and give your new plant a jump start. As a result your plant will grow faster, healthier and produce a higher yield.
Planting tomatoes and other plants through plastic is environmentally friendly and is very beneficial to the growth of your plants.
