1 Packet (8 Tomato Seeds) (TT01105)
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.
Tie the main stems to their supports and remove any sideshoots that develop between the main stem and the leaf stems. Once the plant has produced 6 or 7 trusses, pinch out the top of the main stem. This process of "sideshooting" and "stopping" will increase the availability of light and air movement around the developing fruit, and focus the plants energy on producing a good crop of high quality tomatoes. Tomatoes can be harvested as they ripen from July to October.
For greenhouse cultivation: sow from February to April.
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 growing in a glasshouse tomato plants may be transplanted at the end of May or when the first flowers are showing, if earlier. Allow 3 plants per growbag, or one per 25cm (10") pot, or plant tomatoes directly into the greenhouse soil.
When growing tomatoes outdoors, wait until all risk of frost has passed before transplanting tomatoes. Gradually acclimatise them to outdoor conditions over 7 - 10 days before planting out from early June when tomato plants are 20cm (8") tall. Choose a sheltered position in full sun on fertile, reliably moist, well drained soil, and transplant at a distance of 60cm (24") apart. Drive a (5') cane into the soil adjacent to each plant to support them as they grow, and tie each main stem to its support with soft garden twine.

Lovely tomatoes and they do look good and colourful, but do not necessarily expect all four varieties. I got two pink, three each yellow and orange and no red. Plenty of other red tomatoes in other varieties so this is perhaps the the best one to miss out if seeds are short.
T&M replied on 2015-08-28: Thank you for your review. I am sorry that some of the seeds were not included, although I am glad that you have been happy with them. If you have any queries, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Tomato Rainbow Blend F1 Hybrid 2013-09-17
I would just like to say that these are the best tomatoes I've ever grown. The taste is superb and the trusses look so pretty in my greenhouse, the tomatoes are like little jewels. I have found them really easy to grow from seed, am just about to place an order for more for next year. At £2.99 for 8 seeds this might seem steep, but the yield is superb and for such unusual fruit you would pay that for a small punnet in one of the more high end super markets. Superb, well done.
