Tumbling Tomato Plant
These dwarf tomato plants have been bred specially to fruit on a windowsill, in a hanging basket or on a small patio and will produce sweet tasty cherry tomatoes. They have recently been repotted and will grow well but in a controlled manner in this size pot. However if you would like to encourage your plant to continue to grow and get a bigger harvest then you may wish to repot your plant into a larger pot in a couple of weeks time and stake your plant to some good stiff canes as it grows.
Tomato plants love sunlight and will be happiest on a sunny window sill, in a conservatory or outside on a patio. Give them as much direct sunlight as possible, but if you put them outside make sure they are in a sheltered spot and not exposed to cold winds. The ideal temperature is 15-20 degrees centigrade.
Water the plant every day if possible, and remove any yellowing leaves. If you have any liquid feed they will benefit from feeding once a week (Tomato feed is best but any plant feed will contain extra nutrients).
With the right care these plants will treat you with fruit for up to six weeks. Tomatoes that are allowed to ripen on the plant to a bright red will have the best flavour but green tomatoes can be used in chutneys or placed on a windowsill to ripen. These plants are grown to soil association approved organic standards and although we don’t use any nasty chemicals in our Sussex nursery, it is best to rinse the tomatoes before you eat them.
These are annual plants and will only last one season.
