Tomato Rosella Seed Information
|Seed Quantity:||Approx 10 seeds per pack.|
In greenhouse/polytunnel or in sunny, sheltered spot.
|When to Sow||
February to April under cover.
|How to Sow:||
Sow seeds thinly in seed trays of seed & potting compost or 2-3 seeds in small pots and cover lightly with a little compost. Firm compost gently and water carefully. Keep in heated greenhouse/propagator at about 15-20°C. Transplant into larger individual pots when 10cm tall. 'Harden off' plants for 3-4 days before finally planting them outside from May to June, at a spacing of 45cm between plants. It is best to plant deeply to a depth of 0.5cm below the seed leaves - this helps to give a nice sturdy plant. This variety can also be grown in a greenhouse in a large pot/greenhouse soil or grow bags.
Keep protected if frost is forecast with a fleece or a cloche. They require daily watering and feeding with a high potassium, tomato fertiliser once a week when the fruit has begun to set. As a cordon plant it will require staking and support as it produces a heavy crop of tomatoes and side shoots will require 'pinching out'.
|Harvest:||July to October (from late July outdoors).|
