1 packet (50 tomato seeds) (VKA54105)

  • Place seed, on the surface of a good free-draining, damp, seed compost and cover with a fine sprinkling of compost or vermiculite.
  • Place in a propagator or seal container inside a polythene bag and keep at 18-20°C (64-68F) until after germination, which takes 7-14 days. Do not exclude daylight as this helps germination.
  • Transplant seedlings, when large enough to handle, into 7.5cm (3in) pots. Plant into final position when 20cm (8in) tall, 45cm (18in) apart. Or 2-3 per growbag or large patio container.
  • Support with canes and remove sideshoots regularly.
  • Harvest tomatoes from August until the first frosts.
  • Tomatoes are packed with antioxidants and are high in vitamins A and C and lycopene, which boost the body’s immune system.
