Description

Basket/ Container.

You can expect weights of 4-5lb (1.8-2.25kg) of delicious tomatoes per bush from this compact, heavy yielding outdoor tomato. The fruit of cherry tomato 'Red Alert' are smaller than average but have a vastly superior flavour. This quick maturing variety ripens early before the blight has a chance to strike and is easy to grow with no side shooting needed. This bush variety is perfect for growing in containers outdoors, but can also be grown in the greenhouse if required. Height and spread: 45cm (18").


Companion planting: Try growing tomatoes with French marigolds to deter whitefly, and basil, chives or mint to deter aphids and other pests.

Sowing

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.

More Info

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.
