Growing Calendar for Tomato Sweet Million - Grafted Plants
Delivery: Mid May to Late May
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 plants s 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.
Supplied as well-rooted young plants in 7cm pot.
Tomato Sweet Million (Cordon)-An easy-growing, free-setting cherry tomato with a high sugar content. Produces masses of bite-sized, richly coloured fruits. This variety is perfect suited to our Greenhouse Gro-Beds, as the increased depth allows for bigger, stronger plants to develop.
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.
Didn't receive this variety, I received a variety called Shirley. They have soon started to shoot up into sturdy plants, but was disappointed not to receive the ones I had ordered.
Received alternative plants not the Sweet Million ordered.
Plants arrived in good condition but the planting/growing instructions were very vague. I have always grown tomatoes from seed never grafted plants. I contacted marshals by e mail asking two simple questions that were not covered in their q+a site. I kept getting refer to q+a replies. Finally a human being answers one question but nor the 2nd. I replied directly to her but I am still waiting for a reply. Depending on the answer lies my response to how good I rate the plant.
Once you have received our superb young plants follow these simple instructions...
