One of the easiest tomatoes to grow - and also one of the tastiest, Gardeners Delight' produces long trusses of bit-sized fruits, which are noted for their sweet flavour. Delicious when picked and eaten straight from the plant as a snack, they are also perfect for salads or sandwiches.

  • Garden care:
    Tie in to supports as it grows, and pinch out the sideshoots. Keep well watered and feed weekly once flowers start toform. Keep water levels in the soil consistent to prevent blossom end rot and split fruit. Increase water in hot spells and reduce in cool weather to keep the soil constantly damp but not waterlogged.

  • Sowing instructions:
    From January to March, sow in a frost-free greenhouse or windowsill, potting on seedlings individually as they grow. Once all danger of frost has passed, plant into greenhouse borders or into growbags, or harden plants off and plant outside in rich soil in a sunny spot.

  • Sow: January to March

  • Harvest: August to September
