Half hardy Annual
Description – Cordon (Indeterminate). The true tangy flavour of tomatoes of a century or more ago. If you are of the opinion tomatoes have lost their flavour then Tomato Gardener’s Delight is a must for you. It is a greenhouse or outdoor type, packed with bite-size fruit, ideal for salads and sandwiches and full of vitamins. Highly commended RHS trials.
Sowing – For greenhouse culture sow seeds late winter to early spring 1.5mm (1/16in) deep. Germination usually takes 6-14 days at 24-27C (75-80F).
To grow outside, sow seeds in early spring and grow as above.
Growing – Transplant seedlings when large enough to handle into 7.5cm (3in) pots and plant out into growbags, pots etc when large enough at 45cm (18in) apart. When approx. 2cm (8in) tall gradually acclimatise them to outdoor conditions and plant out 45cm (18in)
Aftercare – Provide support and tie in regularly. Remove side shoots as they appear and restrict the plant to one main stem. Outdoor plants remove growing tip in late summer to hasten
Harvest – July to October
