Take the plants out of the shipping box and remove the packing material. Check the soil for moisture. Water the pots if the soil is dry by setting the pots in a pan of water for 30 minutes and allowing them to drain.
Harden off plants before planting. The seedlings must be acclimated to their new location before you plant them in the ground. Do this by placing them outside for a few hours each day for 1 to 2 weeks, gradually increasing their exposure to sunlight and wind.
On the first day, place them outside in a partly sunny location away from damaging winds for a just a few hours.
Continue to set your seedlings in the sun, extending their time outside a little more each day. Make sure to bring them indoors in the afternoon or evening. After hardening off, your tomato plants will be ready for planting.
