Fall tomato transplants for gardeners in southern regions will be available this year from the Natural Gardening Company. Here are the details, from the company’s news release:

“In response to many customer requests for fall tomato transplants, the Natural Gardening Company will begin offering certified organic tomato transplants the week of Aug. 16, 2009.

These transplants will cater to the needs of gardeners in the most southern part of the United States. While most of the nation’s gardeners will be in the midst of the late summer/early fall harvest by the middle of August, southern gardeners, especially those in the Gulf States, have a fall planting season. Because this season is on a different schedule than the rest of the nation, sources of supply for tomato transplants are scarce.

Choosing from among its popular varieties, the Natural Gardening Company will offer a dozen varieties of tomato transplants, including early varieties, main crop varieties, cherry tomatoes and plum tomatoes. The list includes the following:

  • Big Beef
  • Celebrity
  • Costoluto Genovese
  • Estiva
  • Juliet
  • Ramapo, the New Jersey Tomato
  • San Marzano
  • Stupice
  • Sugar Snack
  • Sun Gold
  • Sun Sugar
  • Zapotec

Plants are sold in groups of six, 12, 18 or additional multiples of six. Customers may mix varieties in any quantity as long as the total is divisible by six. The plants are delivered in 3-inch pots, ready to plant. Six tomato plants plus shipping costs $29.65. A dozen tomato plants plus shipping costs $49.95.

The price for these is outrageous. Buy some seeds, put them in dirt, water.

You could also just cut the suckers from your current tomatoes when they are about 4" or so and plant them. They take up root soon there after and you have yourself free tomatoes. I started with 4 plants and now have 10 little ones just starting to give some tomatoes. It's awesome!
