Product Description

This heavy cropping, super-sweet, large cherry tomato is a top choice for both the beginner and experienced vegetable grower. An indeterminate variety (needs support), it can be reliably grown in a greenhouse or outdoors, producing and abundance of long trailing vines with 10-14 fruits per truss all summer long – quite literally, a gardener’s delight!

Cropping from early summer right into October, ‘Gardener’s Delight’ will reward with super-sweet, richly flavoured fruits with red, glossy skins – perfect for salads and sandwiches as well as for cooking. Try roasting whole trusses with fruit still attached for an attractive addition to pizzas and other savoury dishes – the deliciously sweet flavour will intensify as they cook.

Easy to grow, all you need is a warm windowsill for the seeds to germinate and seedlings usually appear within 7-14 days. When large enough to grow on, they can be transplanted into moist but well-drained, fertile soil or compost in large pots, growbags or border in the greenhouse, or positioned outside in a sunny, sheltered position once the frosts are over. All they need is a sturdy support and some pinching out of sets to encourage a tall, upright central stem.

Sow indoors into a pot of compost, January to April to plant out April to June, 45cm (18in) apart into warm, well-drained, fertile soil or compost in a sunny, sheltered position outdoors or in a greenhouse. Harvest from June to October, depending on position.

Supplied as a packet of approx. 75 seeds ready to sow indoors.

Plant Information

Top Tips

  • Side shoots do not need to be pinched but doing so will encourage a more upright habit and produce higher yields and larger fruit.

Care Guide

How to grow ‘Gardener’s Delight’ Tomato

  • For greenhouse crops sow indoors; a warm kitchen windowsill is all you need for starting these seeds.
    Sow 0.5cm (¼in) deep, thinly in a pot of compost.
    Water well and place in a warm position. A temperature of 15-20°C (60-68°F) is ideal.
    Keep moist. Seedlings usually appear in 7-14 days.
    Transplant to individual pots when 10-15cm (4-6in) tall. Grow on in cooler, but not cold conditions.
    Plant out in April to May, to large pots, growing bags or greenhouse border.
    Provide support, pinch outside shoots regularly and pinch out growing tip after 5-6 trusses have set.
  • For outdoor crops, delay indoor sowing until March or April.
    Gradually accustom plants to outside conditions (avoid frosts), before planting out 45cm (18in) apart, when frosts are over.
  • Harvest from August onwards.
