Description How to Grow Delivery Reviews

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. With no side shooting or training required, these tomatoes are easy to grow both outdoors and under glass. . Height and spread: 30cm (12").

Companion planting: Try growing tomatoes with French marigolds to deter whitefly, and basil, chives or mint to deter aphids and other pests.

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.
