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.

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.
