beefsteak tomato seedlings in a small pot

Zone I don't know. I think 5. I live in Fredericksburg va | Mlgrupe added on April 18, 2015 | Answered

I have beefsteak tomato seedlings in a small pot. There about 10 4-inch seedlings. When I transplant them, does each seedling need to be separated? This is my first time planting a garden. Also, what plant can be in the same raised flower bed? Or should the tomatoes be in their own, like 5-gallon bucket?

Looks like you have successfully germinated your tomato seedlings.
I like to separate and individually pot them up when they have their first true set of leaves.
Make sure they are getting plenty of sunlight and water.
