Tomato Seedling - Tumbling Tom, red cherry
$4.50 / each
Tumbling Tom. A bushing cherry tomato that is best grown in a pot. No staking or lateraling needed. However, you may like to put a small stake in to support the main stem.
Plant your tomatoes before Labour Weekend for a summer harvest.
Tips to growing bushing tomatoes:
Plant deep to the first set of leaves.
Make sure the plant doesn't dry out as the weather warms. Use a liquid fertiliser once a week. Increase to 3 times a week from December/January.
Regularly spray with neem oil to help with white fly. And a seaweed spray to help with bacteria.
Marigolds and basil are great companion plants. They help keep bugs off the tomato plant.
Remove the older yellowing leaves with a sterilised knife.
No plastic packaging, we use and reuse the pots as a growing medium. We remove the pot before packing.
