Plant of the Month – April
Our Plant of the month this month is the delicious Grafted Tomato Plant from Suttons –
Growing your own veg is great fun and really satisfying. It’s such a good feeling sitting down to your meal knowing you grew the food on your plate. And in my opinion there’s very little better than a ripe plump tomato. New to the domestic market are grafted vegetables which are bred for increased vigour and improved performance and then grafter for up to 75% more fruit. As a result grafted vegetables are the new craze in grow your own. One of our favourites is Suttons “F1 Sweet Petit” – a vigorous growing cherry tomato plant producing deliciously sweet and tasty tomatoes, great for salads and snacks. They are ideally grown in a greenhouse (in April-May) but can be planted outside once the weather is sunny (June-July). Give our team a call if you want any info about growing you own veg or about grafted tomatoes in particular.
