Vegetable Seeds from Sow Seeds Ltd
Tomato Tumbling Tom Red is a cascading sweet red cherry tomato suitable for growing in containers & hanging baskets. It produces lots of small but very sweet tasty fruits that have a good balance between sweetness and acidity.
Tomato Tumbling Tom Red trusses hang down all sides of a container or hanging basket and as a tumbling bush variety it doesn't require side shoots pinching out. It is perfect in a hanging basket or pot especially if garden space is at a premium.
Keep picking tomatoes to encourage further fruits to grow & ripen. There is nothing better than eating a sun warmed tomato straight from the vine.

|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 15-20C. 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. Tomato Tumbling Tom Red does not require staking or pinching out.
|Harvest:||12 weeks from sowing.|
