Spacing in rows ~6' apart and plant indeterminate varieties 24-36" apart, determinate varieties should be planted 12-24" apart. When planting, remove each plant's lowest leaves and set the root ball in a hole deep enough so that only the top cluster of leaves is above ground. This planting depth is essential for tomato plants, which can form roots along their stems. These extra roots help anchor the plant and allow for better uptake of water and nutrients.
