Mr Fothergill’s Tomato (Cherry) Tumbling Tom Red Seeds
€4.25 “Price excl. VAT: €4.25”
Technically a fruit, but also Ireland’s favourite summer vegetable! No surprise because nothing you buy beats the flavour of home-grown tomatoes.
Ideal for baskets and containers from which it will gently tumble. Produces lots of sweet, medium-sized cherry fruits. Determinate.
Sow indoors March-April. A warm kitchen windowsill is all you need for starting these seeds. Sow thinly, 0.5cm (¼”) deep, in a pot of compost. Water well and place in a warm position. A temperature of 15-20°C (60-68°F) is ideal. Keep moist. Seedlings usually appear in 7-14 days. Transplant to individual pots when 10-15cm (4-6″) tall. Grow on in cooler, but not cold conditions. Gradually accustom plants to outside conditions (avoid frosts), before planting out May-June into fertile compost in patio tubs with drainage holes or baskets, when frosts are over. Harvest: August-October.
Little space? No problem: Specially selected to grow in containers or small garden spaces, so good crops of tasty, nutritious vegetables can be harvested from your patio, balcony or courtyard.
