Basket/ Container.

The first of its kind - an outdoor cherry plum tomato with exceptional late blight resistance! Tomato 'Romello' produces long clusters of deliciously sweet fruits that show good resistance to cracking. The plentiful crops grow towards the outside of the plant for a particularly easy harvest. This superb determinate bush variety is easy to grow, and won't even need side shooting. An excellent choice for growing in baskets, window boxes and containers on the patio. Height and spread: 30cm (12"). Height and spread: 30cm (12").

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

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 September.

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 heated glasshouse tomato plants may be transplanted at the end of May or when the first flowers are showing, if earlier. Allow 1 plant per 12 inch basket, or one per 25cm (10") - 30cm (12") container.


When growing tomatoes in baskets or patio pots 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.
