Tomato Cristal F1 Thompson & Morgan

£2.99

Winner of the prestigious RHS Award of Garden Merit , this wonderful variety produces glossy, scarlet red fruits with ruby red flesh. Attaining weights of up to 120g, the round, non greenback fruits are perfect for adding to salads and sandwiches. For the best results grow under glass, however they will also thrive in a sunny and warm position outdoors. This excellent variety also has brilliant disease resistance.

If planting in a greenhouse, sow your seeds from February to March. For outdoor cultivation, sow from March to April.

Sow your seeds on the surface of good, free-draining and moist seed sowing mix. Cover with a fine sprinkling of compost or vermiculite.

Place your seed trays into a propagator at a temperature of 15 – 20C until after germination which can take up to 14 days.

When your plants have 2 true leaves, they are ready to transplant into individual 7.5cm pots of compost and grow on at a minimum temperature of 15C.

When growing in a heated greenhouse, transplant at the end of May or once the first flowers show. Allow 3 plants per growbag, 1 per 25cm pot, or transplant straight into the greenhouse soil.

When growing outdoors, wait until there is no risk of frost. Acclimatise your plants to outdoor conditions for up to 10 days before planting them outdoors from early June- when your tomatoes are up to 20cm tall. Position in a sheltered but sunny location with well drained soil, at a distance of 60cm apart. Use a cane to support your plants as they grow.
