Thompson and Morgan Tumbling Tomato Tom Red 15 seeds
This strain is specially suited to hanging baskets where its trusses of exceptionally sweet cherry tomatoes cascade over the edge of the basket.
Tumbler is an early ripening bush variety which can also be grown in the garden and can give up to 2kg of fruit per plant. It is excellent for growbags, tubs, troughs and windowboxes too.
Sow in spring 5-7 weeks before you wish to plant out. Sow the seed 1.5mm deep in good seed compost. Germination takes 6-14 days at 24C. Transplant the seedlings when large enough to handle into 7.5cm pots and grow on in cooler, well lit conditions.
Soil based composts produce shorter plants than peat based composts. For hanging baskets, plant carefully one per 30cm basket leaving a 3cm space for watering. Water well and stand in a cool, airy place until well rooted.
Gradually acclimatise to outdoor conditions before hanging outside permanently after all risk of frost. Feed regularly and keep well watered. If planted outdoors, space 60cm apart in moist, well drained, fertile soil and a sunny spot. This variety needs no side shooting.
