  • Pack Contents: 20x Tomato Seeds
  • Royal Horticultural Society Award of Garden Merit
  • Long-term harvests
  • Withstands common diseases

Enjoy the rewards of a sun-warmed tomato grown for your own back garden. Tomato Shirley F1 is a much-loved variety popular with home-growers up and down the country.

A firm favourite in the UK Tomato Shirley F1 is a cordon type which gives you a longer-harvest of fewer tomatoes than bush varieties. The bonus of this is harvests at just the right quantity at any one time over the whole of the summer and into autumn.   

Experts from the RHS love that it’s easy to grow and offer a great taste and texture. Disease-resistant to Tobacco Mosaic Virus and Fusarium oxysporum this Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) Award of Garden Merit (AGM) variety is reliable and gives you peace of mind that your long-lasting harvests will be unspoilt from disease.

We suggest that you add a potash-rich liquid feed when your tomato Shirley plants come into flower. This gives them an extra boost by giving them the right nutrients at the right time. Water regularly and consistently to keep fruit growing and avoid skin-splitting.
