CARE INFORMATION

Top Tips

  • This variety does well outside and can be grown in large patio pots with support to keep branches off the ground.
  • Side shoots do not need to be pinched but doing so will encourage a more upright habit and produce higher yields and larger fruit.

Care Guide

  • Where to grow: Grow in growing bags or large pots or baskets in a sunny, sheltered position. Plants need 6-8 hours of sun a day.
  • When to grow: Plant as soon as possible, protecting from frost. Plants can be temporarily potted on in to 4in pots and planted out when all risk of frost has passed. Harvest from July depending on variety.

How to grow:

  • Tomatoes are best grown in a growing bags or large pots of compost where they can be fed and watered regularly.
  • Plant up into their containers from April onwards. Plant 2-3 plants per growing bag or 1 per pot, burying up to the first set of true leaves. Leggy plants can be buried deeper as the underground stems will root. Water in well and add your plant label.
  • Grow on for a couple of weeks before placing outside after hardening off. Cover plants with horticultural fleece on any unexpectedly cold nights.
  • As plants grow, keep them watered every day and feed once a week with a tomato feed.
  • Support the plants as they get taller with a stake (or leave them to tumble in a basket), tying in the stems.
  • Pick tomatoes when they are fully ripe.
