Two well loved cherry tomato varieties
Superb yields of sweet, bite sized fruits
Ideal for the vegetable plot or greenhouse
The Cherry Tomato Duo Collection contains Tomato 'Tumbling Tom Red' and Tomato 'Bitesize'.
Tomato 'Tumbling Tom Red' produces an abundant early crop of sweet and juicy cherry tomatoes throughout summer. These compact bush varieties have a naturally trailing habit that will cascade over the sides of baskets, containers and window boxes.
Tomato ‘Bitesize’ is super-sweet and delicious! In fact, it has a higher sugar to acidity ratio than most other cherry varieties. The small cherry tomatoes, each weighing 8-12g, are borne on long trusses. This vigorous variety will produce up to 6kg of fruit with regular side-shooting, giving you more than enough tasty tomatoes for your family’s salads, snacks and lunch boxes.
The Tomato 'Tumbling Tom Collection' contains: 3 Tomato 'Tumbling Tom Red' Postiplug plants, 100g tomato fertiliser, a hanging basket & liner.
The Tomato 'Bitesize' Collection contains: 3 Tomato 'Bitesize' Postiplug plants, 100g tomato fertiliser, 3 tomato watering collars & a growing bag.

Pot up, and grow tomato plants on in warm frost free conditions until large enough to plant outdoors. When all risk of frost has passed, gradually acclimatise them to outdoor conditions over a period of 7 to 10 days.
Choose a sheltered position in full sun on fertile, reliably moist, well drained soil, and transplant at a distance of 60cm (24”) apart. Alternatively grow tomatoes in patio bags and containers in good quality compost such as John Innes No. 2. Drive a (5’) cane into the soil adjacent to each plant to support them as they grow, and tie each main stem to its support with soft garden twine.
Water tomato plants frequently, to keep the compost evenly moist. Feed tomatoes regularly with a high potash plant food once the first truss of fruit has formed.
Tie the main stems to their supports and remove any sideshoots that develop between the main stem and the leaf stems. Once the plant has produced 6 or 7 trusses, pinch out the top of the main stem. This process of "sideshooting" and "stopping" will increase the availability of light and air movement around the developing fruit, and focus the plants energy on producing a good crop of high quality tomatoes. Tomatoes can be harvested as they ripen from July to September.
