Childrens Tomato Tigerella (Mr Stripey) Thompson & Morgan

£1.69

The Children’s Tomato Tigerella, also known as ‘Mr Stripey’ is a heavy-cropping variety of bright red tomatoes featuring tiger-like yellow stripes. The sizes vary from very small cherry tomatoes to giant ‘Beefsteak’ sizes that taste great in sandwiches. Unusual because of its yellow and orange stripes, they are perfect for encouraging young gardeners to start on fruits and vegetables.

Sow indoors in 7.5 pots with moist compost. Sprinkle the seeds over the surface of the compost and cover with a thin layer of compost. Put your pots in a polythene bag or propagator at a temperature between 18-20C. Keep the compost moist but not wet and give 7-14 days to germinate.

Once your plants are large enough to handle, transplant your seedlings into their own 7.5cm pots. Position in full sunlight, and once all risk of frost has passed plant outside spaced 45cm apart. It would be best to acclimatise your tomatoes to outdoor conditions for at least 7 days before potting out.

Pinch out shoots as they appear and this will encourage more tomatoes to grow from August onwards.

Feed your tomato plants with tomato fertiliser throughout the growing period, and your tomatoes will be ready to crop from August.

Products stocked will vary at each centre, please check availability before you visit to avoid disappointment.

We will be pleased to order out of stock items  but this will be dependent on the availability from the supplier.
