    Looking for something similar to West Virginia 63, I think. Northern Nova Scotia area. I'm new to this.
    Would like to grow tomato's year round for salads and sandwiches. Can this be accomplished using planting box and artificial light?

      Hi Thom, yes, they can be grown indoors under artificial lights. However, you need to remember about proper fertilization, depending on the phase of plant development, ensuring the right amount of light and a ventilation system that will remove excess moisture and ensure good airflow between plants.
