Growing Calendar for Tomato Seeds - Montello F1 (Bush)
Delivery: 5-7 Working Days
This vigorous variety is so prolific; producing handfuls of tasty fruit that are so easy to harvest through mid- to late summer.
Montello’s versatility knows no bounds- both in the garden and in the kitchen! Grow in containers, baskets or grow-bags indoors or out and this neat bush variety gets to 90cm in length producing masses of trusses; you don’t even need to pinch out side-shoots.
Your crop of tomatoes are delicious enough to eat straight from the plant or added to salads; they also reduce well when added to the pan, making excellent rich Bolognese sauces and soups.
SOW INDOORS - February-May, individually in clean 9cm pots or module trays of firm pre-watered compost, cover with 1cm of vermiculite or sieved compost. Place in warmth 18-21''c and keep moist at all times.
GROW ON - At 15''c until late May. When established, after the risk of frost has passed, plant into garden soil 60cm apart or into large patio pots 30cm apart or in a grow bag in a full sun location and feed regularly with liquid fertiliser once fruits start to swell.
TIP - Water well and feed regularly with liquid fertiliser once fruits start to swell.
Super strong plants and great tomatoes.
Bought for outdoor use again next year, but used same seeds this year. For what has been a fairly bad year for tomatoes on our allotment, these have produced some lovely small, perfect tomatoes which you can eat with salad or cook. Will try again next year hoping for a better summer!
Tomatoes taste just lovely picked fresh from the vine, tomatoes ripened by the sun have a unique flavour and sweetness making them great to add to salad, snack boxes or reduced to make delicious sauces.
