How to grow Tomahawk
Try to plant in a location that enjoys partial sun and remember to water often. Keep in mind when planting that Tomahawk is thought of as tender, so remember to ensure that temperatures are mild before moving outdoors. The USDA Hardiness Zones typically associated with Tomahawk are Zone 4 and Zone 9. Ideally plant in loamy soil and try to keep the ph of your soil between the range of 5.8 and 6.8 as Tomahawk likes to be in weakly acidic soil.
Growing Tomahawk from seed
Aim to sow 0.49 inches
(1.25 cm) deep and try to ensure a gap of at least 5.85 inches
(15.0 cm). Soil temperature should be kept higher than 5°C / 41°F
to ensure good germination.
By our calculations, you should look at sowing Tomahawk about 53 days before your last frost date.
Ensure that temperatures are mild and all chance of frost has passed before planting out, as Tomahawk is a tender plant.
