Description

Tumbling Tom Red is a very compact type of tomato which is perfect for hanging baskets and patio containers. It produces an abundance of cherry-sized delicious fruits that can be grown indoors or outside.

Pack size: 10 Seeds

WHEN TO SOW

January to April

WHERE TO SOW

Sow seeds underglass 0.5cm (1/4 in) deep in pots or trays of good seed sowing compost and lightly cover with a sprinkling of vermiculite or compost. Place containers in a propagator at a temperature of 18–21°C .

WHAT TO DO NEXT

Prick out seedlings, once large enough to handle, into 9cm (3 1/2in) pots. Transplant to hanging baskets or containers. Plants have a bushy habit and do not require sideshooting. Place outdoors once all risk of frost has past. Water and feed plants regularly with a high potash feed once the first truss has set.

MATURITY

July to October

HANDY TIP

Pick fruits as they ripen and water regularly but do not over water to help prevent the fruits from splitting.

NUTRITIONAL VALUE

High in vitamin C and lycopene.

TYPE

Determinate - Bush type, do not remove side shoots.

There can hardly be a glasshouse in the country that does not have a few tomato plants growing in it, as nothing tastes quite like a tomato freshly picked from your own garden. The range of colours, shapes and sizes is obvious from the choice of 30 different varieties that we here at Kings Seeds offer. Even if you have a window box you can produce your own tomatoes. But, they are not without their problems; tomato plants are very delicate and can easily succumb to disease, they need a fair amount of attention and just a whiff of hormone spray from a neighbouring garden or field can result in deformed fruits and plants - but they are still always worth the effort!

Tomatoes are so versatile and can be used in a variety of dishes. They can be sliced to go into a sandwich or salad, chopped to be used in many Italian sauces such as a delicious bolognese or if they are a bigger variety, they can be stuffed and baked.
