For greenhouse cultivation: sow from February to March.

For outdoor cultivation: sow from March to April.

Sow seeds on the surface of a good, free-draining, damp, seed sowing mix and cover with a fine sprinkling of compost or vermiculite. Place seed trays in a propagator at a constant temperature of around 15-20C (59-68F) until after germination, which takes 7-14 days. When seedlings gain 2 true leaves, transplant into individual 7.5cm (3") pots of compost and grow on at a minimum temperature of 15C (59F).

When tomato plants are well grown, transplant into baskets and containers. When all risk of frost has passed gradually acclimatise them to outdoor conditions over 7 - 10 days before positioning baskets outdoors in a sheltered position in full sun.

Water tomato plants frequently, to keep the compost evenly moist. Feed tomatoes regularly with a high potash plant food once the first truss of fruit has formed. Dwarf bush varieties do not require staking or side shooting.Tomatoes can be harvested as they ripen from July to September.

Reviews
  1. Losetto = lotsatomato

    By Karen Scott 18-03-2013

    Grew 4 of these in baskets in the greenhouse last year, along with many other varieties and these were the most successful of all of them - not many seeds in a packet but worth it, lovely deliciously sweet tomatoes ranging from pea sized to cherry tomato sized fruits. Perfect for salads, couscous and lunchboxes - will be growing these again this year!

  2. Like bunches of grapes and very juicy

    By Joy Larkin 15-11-2011

    We also bought these due to blight spoiling our crops over the past 4 years! These were totally blight free and were still cropping at the end of October! There are only 5 seeds in a pcaket but they all germinated and grew into superb little trailing bushes in baskets which I put on our fence. We'll definitely be growing these again next year and I would highly recommend them if you want a heavy cropping cherry tomato that stays blight free!
