Latin Name – Solanum lycopersicum
Sowing Instructions – Sow seeds underglass 0.5cm deep in pots or trays of good seed sowing compost and lightly cover with a sprinkling of vermiculite or compost. Place containers in a propagator at a temperature of 18–21c. Prick out seedlings, once large enough to handle, into 9cm (3 1/2in) pots. Transplant to the greenhouse border soil, or individual large pots, or 3 plants per growbag when 20cm high. Can also be planted outdoors once all risk of frost has past. Plants require sideshooting and support for the best yields.
Hints and Tips – Water and feed plants regularly with a high potash feed once the first truss has set.
Seeds – Approx 25
