Gardener's Delight Tomato (Cherry): Produces masses of sweet and tangy bite-size 'cherry' fruits. Ideal for a variety of dishes including salads, sandwiches and stir fries. Excellent source of vitamin C and antioxidants.
Indeterminate (needs support)
Sow & Grow: Fill a seed tray just a little below full with moist compost. Sow seeds thinly and then cover them with moist compost. Place in a warm environment (15-20 °C) like a windowsill and keep moist. Keep seedlings in a light sunny position, but away from the bright sun. When large enough to handle, transplant them individually into small pots with compost.
Sow Indoors: January - May; Flowers/Harvest: June - October
Keep plants watered well.
Growing indoors - when first flowers open, transfer into growing bags, large pots or greenhouse borders
Gradually accustom plants to outside conditions for 2-3 weeks before planting out, after the danger of frost has passed.
Allow 60cm (2ft) between plants.
Support the main stem of the plant with a cane.
Remove side-shoots as they appear.
When the first fruits start to develop, ideally feed them with a tomato fertiliser.
Water well and regularly, place some straw under them to prevent rain damage.
