Description

  • Recommended by the Royal Horticultural Society
  • Disease-resistant and good for UK climates
  • Grafted plants for early and bigger harvests

Grow Shirley tomato plants in your own garden for rewarding harvests of this home-grown favourite. This variety is big on taste, imbibing a great flavour from ripening in the sun.

Shirley has good disease resistance to tobacco mosaic virus, leaf mould and fusarium. This is great news for our variable summers which can be hot and dry one year and dull and cool the next year.

Grafted stems are held together with a clip until the cell structures knit together producing a strong disease resistant plant. Enabling you to plant in the same spot year after year.

Grafted Tomatoes have been grown commercially for many years because they:

Are much more vigorous, producing larger, stronger plants

Are less susceptible to nutritional disorders

Show greater resistance to pests and diseases

Produce fruit earlier (by two-three weeks)

Give higher yields of top quality fruit over a longer period compared with normal plants

Are particularly recommended for greenhouse growing, especially if planted directly into the soil.

You will be amazed as the plants reach their full potential and produce amazingly healthy plants and bumper crops of delicious tomatoes.

Supplied as well-rooted young plants in 7cm pot

When you receive your tomato plants by post, water lightly, then plant them up in small pots. If the stem tip is bent, rest assured, it will quickly right itself when exposed to daylight to grow straight and upright. Read our blog for more information on why tomato plants do this.
