Enjoy harvesting tomatoes of Summerlast F1 by the punnet, great for reducing for a Bolognese sauce and good enough to eat straight off the bush. Suitable for growing outdoors, Summerlast is an F1 hybrid bred to withstand UK conditions and keeps on fruiting after other tomato varieties have finished.
Easy to grow these tomatoes look after themselves when it comes to flowering and fruiting. As an F1 generation hybrid Summerlast has been bred to create vigorous and disease-resistant plants.
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.
Moving on your tomato plants:
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.
Just give them a daily watering in the morning and a frequent liquid feed high in potash and they will reward you with tomatoes for months and months.
