Window Box Red Tomato Seeds
Info: The Window Box Red Tomato is a low growing bright red cherry tomato bred for growing in pots, containers and window boxes. The plants are compact at only 30 to 50 cm high with a thick main stem that means no staking required. They produce an early and high yield of the small red cherry tomatoes which have a sweet and tasty tomato flavour. Regular picking will encourage further fruit set of these sweet and tasty little beauties.
Care: You can grow the Window Box Red 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.
