Gardeners Delight - Young Tomato Plant - 8.5cm pot

This compact  variety, producing lots of small sweet round bright red tomatoes.

A really great easy to grow variety, perfect for  patio in pots & planters.

Prolific fruiting type growing long trusses of sweet tasting rich tomatoes.

This is a favoured tomato by all amateur gardeners and is a very reliable cropper.

Best time to plant in a greenhouse is April If you have a harsh frost the plants will turn blue and you may lose some of the leaves, but the plant should still grow out of it when it warms up.

If the main stem collapses then you have lost your plant but that is unusual. If you're planting outside then the 3rd week in May is the best time to plant them after the frosts have gone.

  • Planting time: Apr
  • Harvest: Sept
  • Hardiness: Not Hardy- Protect from cold nights & frost 

Growing Instructions:
Plant 45cm apart in well drained soil in a large pot or ideally inside a greenhouse. If you don't have a greenhouse, you can grow in a conservatory or windowsill until all frosts have passed then slowly acclimatise them to the outdoors over 4-6 days and find the sunniest/warmest position you have in your garden.

Keep young plants well watered until established and in dry weather.

Feed only once you see 3-4 tomatoes starting to swell NOT BEFORE (this is because the plant will not want to reproduce if it’s being fed and watered nicely).

Remove any rotting/dead leaves as the plant grows.

Irregular watering can cause all sorts of problems, make sure you water & feed the soil evenly, try to keep it moist (but not soaking/soggy) DO NOT use farm yard manure on your tomatoes and cucumbers, as farmers sometimes use a hormone weed killer on barley/wheat/straw that is then used as bedding. This will dramatically harm your crop!
