You can't get juicy, garden tomatoes without watering your tomato plants. Tomato seedlings need constantly moist soil, while established plants prefer regular deep watering; but no tomato plant likes water on its foliage. Both soaker systems and drip systems can facilitate tomato irrigation while avoiding wet leaves.
While sprinklers are relatively inexpensive to install and operate, and you have the option of a piped system or one that is linked to a hose and moved around, overhead watering has its problems. The reason for this is that when tomato leaves get wet the moisture can encourage both bacterial and fungal disease.
Once your tomatoes are growing, you need to ensure that they get a consistently even supply of water. There are various methods of watering, including trickle and drip irrigation, sprinklers and hand-held hoses. Either way, you need to be sure that your tomatoes get at least 2.5 cm or an inch of water every week.
You’ll help build your tomato’s root system. Avoid overhead watering, which spreads diseases. Water slowly. Let water sink into the ground to help plants develop strong root systems. When the soil surrounding your tomato plant is moistened 6-8” deep, you’ll know you’ve done your job well.
