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 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.

Tasty Little Gems 2015-04-26
These never made it out of the greenhouse! They were consumed on the spot as daily gardening rewards! Excellent, sweet flavour, didn't split like some others, kept well on the truss and produced masses of tomatoes. Growing them again this year.

Very prolific 2012-12-10
Has produced masses of tomatoes. Started fruiting early and is still going well now, despite blight on other tomatoes in the greenhouse.
WORTH GROWING 2011-09-13
A very easy and satisfying tomato to grow in the greenhouse or in the veg patch. All my plants have produced masses of sweet little tomatoes which hang well on the plants for a reasonable period of time even when ripe. I would really recommend this tomato for luchboxes and salads.
Delicious and easy to grow 2011-08-26
Totally disagree with the previous reviewer, my plants are thriving outside in growbags. They produced masses of fruit, sweet and tasty. Never had as many tomatoes on one plant before, will definitely be growing it again.
