Get cordon tomato Gardening Delight for your greenhouse. It’s an improved Gardener's Delight variety which was a favourite for decades- but started to behave erratically for the home-grower.
Problem solved, with the modern breeding behind Gardening Delight which has brought back the tangy flavour of old, long trusses loaded with cocktail-sized fruit (slightly larger than a cherry but smaller than standard sized tomatoes) and paired it with better disease-resistance to blight for more guaranteed good tomatoes.
We recommend you feed Gardening Delight tomatoes with a purpose-formulated tomato food high in potash when you see flowers appear. This gives them the boost they need for them to then get on with everything themselves to give you tomatoes through the summer.
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.
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.
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.

Long lazy summery days in the garden cry out for simplicity, allowing succulent produce to make its own statement. Lend a helping hand by choosing from the many different varieties of tomatoes which are now so freely available.
