Product Description

Biting into a sweet, juicy cherry tomato on a summer's day is hard to beat! They taste so much better fresh, and they should be eaten warm - when the aromatics in them are at their most active, to give the best flavour.

Growing tomatoes is easy and incredibly rewarding - make salads and chutneys, or of course eat them fresh. 'Tumbling Tom' is the ideal variety to get started growing your own tomatoes - so easy in hanging baskets, tubs, planters and even window boxes - you will get hundreds of small red cherry tomatoes per plant in summer. Get the children growing them!

They are self-branching, so other than pinching the tip out when you plant, there is no need to do anything else to them, unlike other tomato varieties. Tumbling Tom produces a massive crop of firm, round fruit all summer long - each one packed with sweet, delicious juice. Perfect fresh and in salads.

Plant Information

Top Tips

Fill in gaps in containers with sun-loving herbs such as basil or plant nasturtiums to trail over the sides. You could also add a pepper plant to the middle of your pot or basket for added height and interest.

Care Guide

Planting Advice for Tumbling Tomatoes

  • Once the plants are 10cm tall, they can be planted in the hanging basket or container, ideally using 1 plant for a 25cm basket or 3 in a 35cm basket.
  • Tomatoes can be planted up into their containers from April onwards, and grown on for a couple of weeks before placing outside after hardening off. Cover plants with horticultural fleece on any unexpectedly cold nights.
  • Fill containers to within 2-3cm (about 1in) of the rim with moist compost - growing bag compost or our own professional compost is ideal.
  • Bury the roots deeply (up to first ‘seed’ leaves on the stem) and water well, to settle the compost around them.
  • Place the containers in a sunny sheltered spot.


 

Aftercare advice for your tumbling toms

  • Water regularly to keep the compost moist - at least once a day in hot weather when the plants grow larger.
  • As soon as fruits start to form, feed the plants regularly with a liquid tomato food.
  • Remove old leaves as they yellow to let in light and air.

 

Picking your tomatoes

  • Let the fruits get really ripe before you pick them to maximise their taste - the first ones should be ready from the end of July

Kept informed of my Order by emails and plants were delivered within a week of Ordering
Product:
Most of the plants had dried out by the time I had received them and all looked wilted and signs of yellowing. Crammed into plastic trays too. I salvaged around 6 of each and quickly planted them up into hanging baskets. I've kept them out of direct sunlight for past few days in the hope that they will recover as weather has been very warm down here in the SW.

Ordered two sets of twelve and got an extra three so quite pleased with that . I have just potted them in hanging baskets and they have picked up a treat and some are already starting to flower.
