    Thank you so much for your comprehensive and detailed explanation of how to grow tomatoes. The information came at the right time. I tried gardening last year but failed because of lack of knowledge. Am not giving up, although I planned doing it in a permanent place. For now am just gathering my seeds.
    I want to ask you a question please. Can I build a green house in lets say the northern part of Nigeria where the is kind of hot and dry most times in a year?
    I really want to go into gardening. Thank you once more

    Yes very well. one place to find out is in Vom in plateau state. the last time i checked, one was functioning also in bauchi. That is to say you can still build a green house in the north

    that is grate. am Joseph from Uganda. thank for the inspiring knowledge. is growing tomatoes so much dependent on the type of seed you use or not?. if yes which type is the best. i want to know this because one time i went to visit a friend and i saw a tomatoes which had grown bigger and had yielded more than i had ever seen in an open place yet without any special care.

    how much will it cost to build a green house on 1hectre of land? and which is the be

    st variety? (seed)

    • nigfree says:

      This will all depend on the type you want. If you want to build it yourself, you’ll need to decide whether you’re going to use wood or plastic pipes to do it. if you decide to buy it, you’ll have to tell the supplier the size of the land and will tell you how much it will cost.

    hello, please where can i get the leather to buy? i want to start the farming, and how much would it cost me to start?

    • nigfree says:

      Well visit any leather factory for the leather. The leather must be UV treated else a pure white leather won’t work.
      Or visit any of the ministry of agriculture or a tomato farm for where to get the green house leather.
