How to Guide

Sowing Indoors

Almost fill a seed tray with moist seed compost. Sow seeds thinly over the surface, and lightly cover them with a little more compost. Place in warmth 18-20C (65-70F), and keep moist.

Row Spacing

60cm / 24in

Sowing Distance

15cm / 6in

Transplanting

Gradually accustom to outside conditions 2-3 weeks before planting out when danger of frost has passed. Allow 45cm (18in) between plants in the row and 60cm (24in) between rows.

Potting on/Thining Out

Keep seedlings in a light position, but shade from bright sun. When large enough to handle, transplant seedlings individually to small pots of potting compost, and maintain a minimum 15C (60F).

Aftercare

Water plants generously and regularly. When the first fruits start to swell, feed with a tomato fertiliser. Bush tomatoes do not need their side shoots removed.
