Growing Calendar for Tomato Shirley (Cordon) - Plants
Delivery: Late April to Early May
Cor blimey. This cordon will give you handsome harvests from scented tomato plants for months even in an non-heated greenhouse.
Shirley is a relatively compact, early-maturing variety yielding a reliable crop of sweet tomatoes through the summer. Its cordon-type vertical growth means it's a great contender for space-saving vertical gardening.
Recommended by the Royal Horticultural Society you're on a winner when you grow Shirley. Plants reach 2m (6 1/2 ft) and give you lots of fruited trusses of salad tomatoes all summer long.
We recommend you water once a day. Some growers water less to intensify the flavour of tomatoes. We like them reduced into tasty sauces where the flavour intensifies on cooking.
Excellent condition of plants
Arrived well packed and in good condition
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.
