Silver Fir Tree Tomato Seeds
Info: The Silver Fir Tree tomato is a very  unusual bush tomato from Russia with silvery-green, feathery foliage that has a high decorative value. The plants produce an early and high yield of red, medium-sized, flat-round beefsteak tomatoes which are very flavourful. The plants are short in stature (up to 60 cm) and are therefore very good for cultivating in pots, window boxes or hanging baskets.
Care: You can grow the Silver Fir Tree tomatoes inside the house, in a greenhouse or outdoors. The optimal germination temperature is between 20 and 25°C, and germination occurs after 8 - 14 days. You can speed up the germination process if you leave the seeds to soak overnight in a damp cloth. You should wait until after the last frost to plant your chosen plants.
Tomatoes need fresh, well-fertilised, permeable soil which is kept moist (but not wet!). They should be planted in a sunny, protected place with at least 6 hours of sunlight - preferably more.
