  • RHS Award of Garden Merit

Sowing Time

  • March - May

Sowing Indoors

Almost fill a seed tray with moist seed compost. Sow seeds thinly over the surface and lightly cover with a little more compost. Place in the warmth 18-20°C (65-70°F) and keep moist. Keep seedlings in a light position, but shade from direct sunlight. When  large enough to handle, transplant seedlings individually to small pots of potting compost and maintain a minimum 15°C (60°F)

Transplanting

Gradually accustom plants to outside conditions for 2-3 weeks before planting out when danger of frost has passed.

Aftercare

Water plants generously and regularly. When first fruits start to swell, feed with a tomato fertiliser.

Training

Support the main stem of each plant with a bamboo cane. Remove side shoots as they appear. Remove the growing tip of each plant once 4 or 5 trusses have formed.

Harvest

  • July - September
