Tomato Orkado Thompson & Morgan
The ‘Orkado’ is a wonderful cordon variety that produces a good harvest of uniform, round and medium sized fruit. The trusses are early to ripen, and will bear an average of 8 round, deep red fruits. Firm and deliciously flavoured, the medium fruits can weigh up to 140g. They are resistant to splitting and are perfect for slicing.
Sow your seeds on the surface of good quality, well-draining seed sowing mix and cover with a fine sprinkling of compost or vermiculite. Place your trays in a propagator at a temperature of around 15-20C until after germination which will take 7-14 days. When you seedlings are large enough to handle, transplant them into individual 7.5cm pots of compost and grow at a minimum temperature 15C.
When growing outdoors, wait until there is no risk of frost. Acclimatise to outdoor conditions for 7-10 days before planting out from early June when your plants are 20cm tall. Choose a sheltered location with fill sunlight and well drained, fertile soil, at a distance of 60cm apart. Use a cane to help support your tomato plants when growing.

Tomato Growing Secret (Special Marigold) Thompson & Morgan
For many decades in certain parts of the old world it has been the practice to grow African or French marigolds of a certain type to repel white fly on tomatoes in greenhouses or outdoors. It has also been found that the tomatoes grow better and bear more fruit with marigolds around them.
