  • Position: full sun
  • Soil: humus-rich, moisture retentive soil

    With fruits hanging down in clusters like scarlet jewels this is one of the prettiest cherry tomatoes you can grow, and ideal for hanging baskets or containers on a sunny patio. Plants are compact and trouble-free, cascading attractively over the sides of your pots and quickly smothered in bite-sized sweet red fruits. To make sure hanging baskets get enough water mix a handful or two of water-retaining gel into the compost when planting.

  • Growing Instructions:Sow in a frost-free greenhouse or windowsill, potting on seedlings individually as they grow. Once all danger of frost has passed, harden plants off and plant into hanging baskets or large containers of good-quality compost: allow one plant to a 35cm container. Keep well-watered and feed weekly with liquid tomato feed once flowers form.

  • Sow: January-March

  • Harvest: August-September

  • Approximate quantity: 25 seeds.
