Tempting Tomatoes® Goodhearted® Tomato Care & Growing Information

Planting should take place in late spring as this plant thrives on warmth. Expect it to grow 12 to 18 inches high with a trail up to 12 inches and a spread of 12 to 24 inches. Spacing should be 18 to 24 inches. For a thriving plant, grow in rich soil. Tomatoes are heavy feeders, hungry for a fertilizer of 10-10-10. Before planting, mix the fertilizer well into the soil with a fork or similar garden tool.

Plant in full sun and water consistently, keeping the soil moist. Blooms will appear in late spring to early summer with a ripened crop at approximately 65 to 72 days and will continue to produce throughout the summer. Continue to fertilize every 4 to 6 weeks throughout the growing season. Remove any dead leaves to direct the plant's energy toward producing plump, juicy fruits. For a delicious, authentic taste of summer the Tempting Tomatoes Goodhearted Tomato is a perfect choice!

We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty, whether you're a new gardener or an expert. There are many variables outside of anyone's control that can cause a plant to die.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs. SImply let us know if your plant has died within 1 year of receiving it and we will get you a new one shipped out as soon as possible (depending on the time of the year and availability).

Guarantee and Warranty

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.

Summer

If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!

Winter

Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
