Every plant produce attractive rare crinkly leaves like that of curly kale so is ornamental as well as productive.
Keep plants under cover or grow outside on a sunny patio. Patio Plum is an easy variety to grow for you don’t need to pinch out side-shoots as they grow or provide support like cordon-type greenhouse tomatoes.
How to sow:
From late winter get hold of 9cm pots and fill them with seed and cutting compost, suitable for seeds that are just germinating. The compost has just the right level of nutrients to see your seedlings off to a sure start.
Position three seeds 0.5cm (1/4in) deep around the edge of a 9cm pot. Water the compost then label and date your tomato Patio Plum for future reference.
Put the pots somewhere that gets 18°C (64°F) of warmth (a thermometer is a handy investment for seed sowing) and keep the soil damp but not waterlogged until your seedlings reach a size when they will happily fill a bigger pot. From now on every seedling will require a pot of its own to grow successfully. Transplant again into bigger pots by degrees as your tomato plants develop.
