How do you plant tomatillos?
Since tomatillos have a long growing season, they can be started indoors up to eight weeks before the last frost date. Plant seeds 1/4 inch deep and space seedling 18-24 inches apart in rows set 3 to 4 feet apart when transplanting. Tomatillos also grow well in pots and can be planted in 5-gallon buckets.
Can tomatillos and tomatoes be planted together?
You can grow both tomatillos and tomatoes in pots on a warm patio or porch, but choose determinate varieties of tomatoes – these stop getting taller by mid-season – or miniature tomato cultivars, and keep tomatoes and tomatillos in separate pots for best results.
