    Individual pots, most of mine are large tubers now so I use 6, 7 or 8 inch pots. Plant them with tuber showing above the compost, just like they are in the seed trays. Dont water direct onto the tuber, either stand in a dish and water from the bottom, or carefully water around the edge of the pot. 

    When the flower buds start to appear they will benefit from a weekly feed of liquid tomato food.

    Dont put them outside yet, much too cold.
