Probably the last week for tomato plants. They will need hardening off and protection from frost, but can be planted under cover now. Many were sown early and so are big. One tip for tall tomato plants is to remove the lower leaves and plant them deeply (including part of the stem) as tomatoes grow roots from their stems.
There are 3 varieties available in different size pots. All are picked because they are reliable and taste delicious:
Sungold: a beautifully sweet cherry tomato with orange skin when ripe. £2.00 a pot.
Gardener’s Delight: a reliable, old favourite red cherry tomato with a great flavour. £2.00 a pot.
Tigerella: a medium sized tomato with an attractive red and yellow striped skin and a lovely flavour. £1.50 a 9cm pot & £2.00 for medium sized pot.
