Grafted Tomato Plants For Stronger Plants, Higher Yields and Greater Disease  Resistance

Many of us have small gardens with growing
space at a premium which may mean that we
can't rotate crops as we would like.
Grafting combines a hardy base plant highly resistant to soilborne disease, grafted onto a variety with superior flavoured fruit.

Grafted stems are held together with a clip until the cell structures knit together producing a strong disease resistant plant. Enabling you to plant in the same spot year after year.

Grafted Tomatoes have been grown commercially
for many years because they:

  • Are much more vigorous, producing larger, stronger plants
  • Are less susceptible to nutritional disorders
  • Have greater resistance to pests and diseases
  • Produce fruit earlier (by 2-3 weeks)
  • Give higher yields of top quality fruit over a longer period compared with normal plants
  • Are particularly recommended for greenhouse growing, especially if planted directly into the soil.

You will be amazed as the plants reach their full potential and produce amazingly healthy plants and bumper crops of delicious tomatoes.


Supplied as well-rooted young plants in 7cm pot

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 am afraid i would not purchase these plants again. The plants are expensive, was told grafted plants perform better, this is not so. Disappointed
