What to do on arrival
On arrival open the packages immediately. You may notice a little compost spillage due to movement in the post, and occasionally an odd yellow leaf may appear and fall off due to the plants being in a box for a short period, but this is nothing to worry about. If there is any significant damage please contact us immediately. Stand the plants upright and give a little water as required. After a couple of hours the plants will have recovered from the journey and will be ok to plant as directed below.
Always prepare your soil well prior to planting by adding a general fertiliser and rake well into the soil. If growing in containers, plant into a good quality potting compost and feed throughout the growing season to keep plants healthy and producing a tasty crop over a longer period.
July to October
3 plants per growbag or one plant per 20-25cm (8-10") pot.
When the plants are about 10cm (4") tall, plant out into final positions into large pots or growbags under glass. To help support the weight of the crop it is best to tie the plants to come canes as they grow. Feed once a week with high potash tomato fertiliser once first fruits have set. Can also be planted into containers on a sunny patio, move containers outside once all risk of frost has passed. In autumn move back undercover to ripen any remaining fruits.
