Grafted tomatoes

How deep should I plant grafted tomato plants? Should the graft be above or below the soil level?

    My instinct is that the graft should be above the soil level ... but that's just my instinct ... I've never grown grafted tomatoes ... maybe someone else has ...

    I agree Dove. Likewise I've not grown grafted toms, but would guess that like fruit trees you want to keep the graft above the soil level

    It’s above soil level, the same depth as the pot they come in if you have bought them from Sutton’s or similar. The plants have exceptional vitality so stake them well.
