Growing Calendar for Tomato Shirley (Cordon) - Plants
Delivery: Late April to Early May
The standard greenhouse variety 'par excellence'.
A relatively compact, early maturing variety yielding a reliable crop of sweet tomatoes.
Does well in an unheated greenhouse.
When you receive your tomato plants by post, water lightly, then plant them up in small pots. If the stem tip is bent, rest assured, it will quickly right itself when exposed to daylight to grow straight and upright. Read our blog for more information on why tomato plants do this.
i planted them on arrival and all three are growing well
NOT PLANTS SEEDLINGS
Very poor specimens supplied. Only one out of 3 survived.
Please unpack the plants as soon as you receive them and sit them in a tray of shallow water if they appear to have dried out in transit.
