Cultivation advice Tomato – Gartenperle

  • Sow in spring 1/16 inch deep.  Germination takes around 6-14 days at 65-75F.
  • Transplant the seedlings when large enough to handle into 3 inch pots.  Grow on under cooler conditions and when about 6 inches tall, transplant into tubs or hanging baskets (the larger the better) and gradually acclimatise them to outdoor conditions after all danger of frost has passed.
  • These do not require side shoots to be removed as appreciate some support as they get larger.
  • Keep moist at all times and never allow the container to dry out.
  • Feed with appropriate liquid tomato fertiliser from early summer.
