 Cultivation Advice Tomato Trailing Sunstripe F1

  • Sow under cover with warmth provided in spring 1/16 inch deep in fine seed compost and cover lightly with vermiculite.
  • 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 plant to container or basket when large enough to handle.
  • Best kept growing under cover until the weather warms before gradually acclimatising them to outdoor conditions.
  • The plants will readily trail.    In baskets the plants are thirsty and require regular watering and feeding.

What’s the difference between “indeterminate” and “determinate” tomatoes?

Determinate tomatoes, or “bush” tomatoes, are varieties that grow to a compact height (generally 3 – 4′). Determinates stop growing when fruit sets on the top bud. All the tomatoes from the plant ripen at approximately the same time (usually over period of 1- 2 weeks). They require a limited amount of staking for support and are perfectly suited for container planting.

Indeterminate tomatoes will grow and produce fruit until killed by frost. They can reach heights of up to 12 feet although 6 feet is normal. Indeterminates will bloom, set new fruit and ripen fruit all at the same time throughout the season. They require substantial staking for support and benefit from being constrained to a central growing stem.
