Tomato Seeds Ailsa Craig by Mr Fothergill's
An old favourite with UK gardeners, producing masses of fine-flavoured, mid-red fruits.
This is an indeterminate variety, so will need some support.
For greenhouse crops, sow indoors January-April. A warm kitchen windowsill is all you need for starting these seeds.
Sow thinly, 0.5cm (¼") deep, 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 (4-6") tall. Grow on in cooler, but not cold conditions.
Plant out April to May to large pots, growing bags or greenhouse border.
Harvest: June-October. For outdoor crops, delay indoor sowing until March or April.
Gradually accustom plants to outside conditions (avoid frosts), before planting out into warm,
well-drained soil, 45cm (18") apart, when frosts are over. Harvest from August onwards.
Tomatoes growing in a greenhouse require plenty of ventilation and water.
Feed regularly once trusses have set.
