Sow                         Plant Out          Harvest

January to April April  to June July to October

 
Where to Sow Sow seeds under glass 0.5cm(1/4 in) 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 .                                        
 
What to do next    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 (8in) high.    Can also be planted outdoors once all risk of frost has past. Plants require side shooting and support for the best yields. Water and feed plants regularly with a high potash feed once the first truss has set.
 
Handy Tip Pick fruits  as they ripen and water regularly , but do not overwater to help prevent these small fruits from splitting.
 

There can hardly be a glasshouse in the country that does not have a few tomato plants growing in it, as nothing tastes quite like a tomato freshly picked from your own garden. The range of colours, shapes and sizes is obvious from the choice of 30 different varieties that we here at Kings Seeds offer. Even if you have a window box you can produce your own tomatoes. But, they are not without their problems; tomato plants are very delicate and can easily succumb to disease, they need a fair amount of attention and just a whiff of hormone spray from a neighbouring garden or field can result in deformed fruits and plants - but they are still always worth the effort!

Tomatoes are so versatile and can be used in a variety of dishes. They can be sliced to go into a sandwich or salad, chopped to be used in many Italian sauces such as a delicious bolognese or if they are a bigger variety, they can be stuffed and baked.
