Ripens up to 2 weeks earlier than 'Tumbler'!
Superb branching habit for maximum crops
Delicious and sweet cherry tomatoes
Ripening up to 2 weeks earlier than the ever popular ‘Tumbler’! Tomato 'Red Profusion' is quickly gaining a reputation as one of the best basket and container varieties available. This bush cherry tomato forms a neat and compact plant with a superb branching habit. Just one plant will easily fill a 30cm (12") basket, producing heavy crops of 20g, sweet cherry tomatoes. This bush variety is easy to grow with no side shooting needed. Perfect for growing in containers outdoors, but can also be grown in the greenhouse if required. Height and spread: 45cm (18").
Supplied as peat free plugs/9cm pots.
1 x 9cm Peat-Free Potted Plant (KC3201)
For greenhouse cultivation: sow from February to March.
For outdoor cultivation: sow from March to April.
Sow seeds on the surface of a good, free-draining, damp, seed sowing mix and cover with a fine sprinkling of compost or vermiculite. Place seed trays in a propagator at a constant temperature of around 15-20C (59-68F) until after germination, which takes 7-14 days. When seedlings gain 2 true leaves, transplant into individual 7.5cm (3") pots of compost and grow on at a minimum temperature of 15C (59F).
When tomato plants are well grown, transplant into baskets and containers. When all risk of frost has passed gradually acclimatise them to outdoor conditions over 7 - 10 days before positioning baskets outdoors in a sheltered position in full sun.
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. Dwarf bush varieties do not require staking or side shooting. Tomatoes can be harvested as they ripen from July to September.

Van Meuwen strives to ensure that all its plants are delivered to you in the perfect condition for planting. While the majority of our nursery plants cope well with slight delays in intransit, sadly, the time it takes to deliver to certain locations in the UK means that we can't guarantee this for some of our smaller plug products and tender bedding and vegetable lines, which do not respond well to the extra journey time. So regretfully while we offer the majority of our live plant offering nationwide, we are unable to ship plugs, begging plants and tender vegetable plants to the following areas: HS, IV41-IV49, IV51, IV55-56, KW15-KW17, PA34, PA41-48, PA60-PA78, PA80, PH40-PH44, TR21-TR24, ZE1-ZE3.
