GrowingEdit

Main article: Tomato: Growing

SowingEdit

Sow seeds February to April 6mm (¼in) deep in pots or trays of good, free draining, damp seed compost and cover with a sprinkling of vermiculite or compost. Place containers in a propagator or seal in a polythene bag at a temperature of 18-21°C (65-70°F) until after germination which takes 7-10 days.[2]

TransplantingEdit

Transplant seedlings when large enough to handle into 7.5cm (3in) pots. Plant in the greenhouse in individual large pots, or 3 plants per growbag when 20cm (8in) high. Can be planted outdoors, 45cm (18in) apart once all frost risk has passed.[2]

AftercareEdit

Plants require sideshooting and support for the best yields. Water and feed plants regularly with a high potash feed once the first truss has set.[2]
