How to grow:
Step 1. Tomatoes are best grown in a growing bags or large pots of compost where they can be fed and watered regularly.
Step 2. Plant up into their containers from April onwards. Plant 2-3 plants per growing bag or 1 per pot, burying up to the first set of true leaves. Leggy plants can be buried deeper as the underground stems will root. Water in well and add your plant label.
Step 3. Grow on for a couple of weeks before placing outside after hardening off. Cover plants with horticultural fleece on any unexpectedly cold nights.
Step 4. As plants grow, keep them watered every day and feed once a week with a tomato feed.
Step 5. Support the plants as they get taller with a stake (or leave them to tumble in a basket), tying in the stems.
Step 6. Pick tomatoes when they are fully ripe.
