Time flies when you’re growing tomatoes right? 

As we watch our fellow ‘maniacs in the southern hemisphere start their seasons, we’re winding up ours. But “next season” is already upon us as we review seeding and schedules, celebrate exciting new varieties, investigate some new event possibilities and generally get set for tomato season 2024.

If you’re new to our crazy circus, welcome! Enjoy our site, webstore and tips. 

We’ll look forward to seeing you at an event next year. 2024 dates and event additions will be added here as they are confirmed.

 Keep an eye on our Instagram (@Tomatomania) and Facebook (Tomatomania) for the latest event news and schedule details plus growing tips and updates on our test gardens. 

We can’t wait to see you!

Tomatomania is my favorite holiday of the entire year! Sue B., Los Angeles, CA

Tomatomania! is a huge community of enthusiastic tomato lovers and the world’s largest (and most fun) tomato seedling sale! It’s what the New York Times called, “the tomato freaks’ Woodstock,” and if you’re crazy about tomatoes, this is the place for you!

Started in the early 90s at Hortus, a trend-setting nursery in Pasadena, California, today includes classes, sales events, tomato tastings, and impromptu social gatherings at popular nurseries and garden destinations across the state.

scott-daigre-home-smallI’m Scott Daigre, the producer of this crazy circus. We work all year to come up with a collection of seedlings that will thrill and amaze you. My team of experienced “Tomatomaniacs” and I are determined to make you wildly successful in the tomato garden. Our sales events, social media and web presence are all geared to help you become a better gardener and tomato grower!

I planned to get 8 and left with 18, did I get enough? Ben H., Sonoma, CA


Roger’s Gardens in Corona del Mar, CA is one of the premier garden retailers in the country and has been home to the Tomatomania! kick off event for over ten years. For many, Tomatomania! is the official start of the spring season. Check it out!
