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.

I grew this variety last year for the first time. Planted outdoors it was the most productive of any tomato variety I've ever grown. I filled my freezer with enough tomatoes to keep us in pasta sauces all year. I will give each plant more space this year to accommodate their extensive vigour.
I only had 4 seeds in my packet, bit of a rip off ! They have sprouted and look reasonably healthy. Would not buy them again.
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.

A delicious and cost effective meal, excellent for pre-preparing for the busy midweek schedule.
When tomatoes are plentiful, home made tomato sauce is just the ticket. After processing in the food processor, I usually portion, add additional flavourings, such as chilli, smoked paprika, basil or mushrooms then freeze.
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.
