WHEN TO SOW
February to April
Where to Sow
Sow seed on the surface of a free draining compost in pots or trays and cover with a fine sprinkling of compost or vermiculite and place at a temperature 18-21°C until seeds germinate.
What to do next
Prick out seedlings when large enough to handle into 7cm (3in) pots and grow on underglass. Once plants reach 10cm (4in) high transplant into growbags or 25cm (10in) pots and grow on underglass. Feed once a week with tomato fertiliser once first fruits have set.
Late July to October.
Water regularly keeping compost damp not sodden. Once the fruits have begun to swell use a potassium rich feed when watering.
A good source of Vitamin C and beta carotene.
