  • Tomato Cossack Thompson & Morgan

    Similar to ‘Moneymaker’ the ‘Cossack’ tomato produces high yields of delicious, medium sized fruits weighing at least 75g. With excellent resistance to TMV, Fusarium and Cladosporium they are the perfect addition to a greenhouse or sunny patio. They have an extended period of cropping when grown cold compared to other varieties, and are early to ripen, making them a brilliant garden variety.

    When sowing, choose a location with full sun. Sow from February to March, on the surface of good quality, free draining and moist seed compost, and then cover with a fine sprinkling of compost or vermiculite.

    Place in a propagator at a temperature of between 18 – 20C until germination which can take up to 14 days. When your seedlings are large enough transplant into individual 7.5cm pots of compost and grow at a minimum temperature of 15C. Your tomatoes will be ready to harvest from June until September.

    British bred, these cherry tomatoes are neatly grown with a compact and bush like habit. Only growing to an eventual height of 30cm and spread of 45cm they are the perfect choice for pots on the windowsill, basket or container because of their slight trailing nature.

    When growing in a greenhouse, sow from February to March, and if growing outdoors sow from March until April. Sow your seeds on the surface of good quality and free draining, moist, seed sowing mix and cover with a thin sprinkling of compost or vermiculite. Place your trays in a propagator at a temperature of 15-20C until after germination which will take from 7-14days. When your seedlings are large enough to handle transplant into individual 7.5cm pots of compost and grow on at a temperature of 15C.
