Demeter Tomato Seeds - Gardeners' Delight
This 'large' cherry tomato forms long trusses of very sweet, bite-sized fruit. Perfect for a snack, salad, for roasting, or for popping in the children's lunchboxes, it's one of the most reliable tomatoes - both trouble-free and prolific.
Info & Care
Sow indoors: Sow from January - March in a seed tray or direct into pots and leave to germinate in a frost-free greenhouse or windowsill. Pot on seedlings into individual pots as they grow. Once all danger of frost has passed, plant into greenhouse or into growbags, or harden plants off and plant outside in rich soil in a sunny spot.
Growing instructions: Tomatoes need a lot of light and a well draining fertile soil. Tie in to supports and keep well-watered (keeping water levels in the soil consistent prevents split fruit, so water more in hot weather and less in cool weather). Water the soil, not the plant as tomato leaves and stems dislike getting wet. Pinch out the tops once they have set 5 or 6 trusses of tomatoes. You also need to pinch out any side shoots straight away (as they grow very fast) that develop between the stem and main branches as they divert valuable energy from the developing fruits. Tomatoes will be ready for picking from July onwards.
