Feed and water plants regularly. Tomatoes should be grown in reliably moist soil. Do not over water or allow the soil to dry out as this is likely to cause blossom end rot on the developing fruits. Feed plants regularly with a high potash plant food once the first truss of fruit has formed. As plants grow continue to tie the main stem to the cane support. Begin "side shooting" tomato plants by removing any sideshoots that develop between the main stem and the leaf stems. When the plant has produced 6 or 7 trusses, "stop" it by pinching 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.
Repot plants into 9cm pots and grow on in warm frost free conditions until large enough to plant out. In May, when all risk of frost has passed, gradually acclimatise Tomato plants to outdoor conditions over a period of 7 to 10 days. Choose a sheltered position in full sun on reliably moist, well drained soil. Prepare the planting area by digging in plenty of well rotted manure or garden compost and adding slow release fertiliser to the soil. Plant tomato plants 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. Tomato plants will require support as they grow. Drive a (5’) cane into the soil adjacent to each plant and tie the main stem to it with soft garden twine. Water well to settle the soil.
