Tomatoes
A tomato plant is a fine thing to grace
a sunny patio or balcony; standing tall
or tumbling from a basket, dripping with
glowing fruits. The fruits come in red,
yellow, orange and more, varying from
bite-sized to beefsteak. Tomato plants
don’t like cold or frost, so must be grown
indoors until summer is on its way.

A home grown tomato, ripened on the plant,
with a journey of just a few steps from plant
to plate beats anything you can buy for flavour.
If you have a glut, try them slow roasted. Use
end of season, unripe tomatoes for fried
green tomatoes, or chutney.
Suggested pot size : 20-25cm diameter depending on variety
Hanging basket : 35cm diameter.

All tomatoes can be grown in pots.

Choose varieties that are suitable for outdoor growing. ‘Cordon’ varieties
grow tall; ‘bush’ varieties trail. Smaller fruited varieties are quickest to crop.
Some to try: Gardeners Delight (red fruit) and Sungold (orange fruit): small
fruited, cordon varieties. Harbinger: medium sized red fruits; cordon, great
flavour from early 20th century. Losetto, Koralik: red fruited bush varieties
with some resistance to tomato blight disease.

Sow

1. Sow seeds in a shallow tray or pot.
Cover lightly with compost. Keep at 20°C.

Grow

2. When seedlings are large enough to handle,
gently pot up into 15cm pots. Hold by leaves,
not the stem.
3. When first flower opens, move into final
size container. Add a sturdy cane for ‘cordon’
varieties. Keep in a warm, light place.

If you only need a few plants, then buying
plants (in April or May) is the simplest option.
Or if you want lots, sow seeds in a warm spot
(20°C). Grow them indoors until days and
nights are warm. Wait until the first flowers
open before before putting into a larger pot.

Watering tips:
Keep the compost moist at all times, but
not waterlogged. Full grown fruiting plants
may need to be watered twice a day. If fruits
go black at the end, this indicates that the
compost has dried out at some stage.
Support:
Tie tall growing ‘cordon’ or vine varieties
to a cane, well anchored in the pot, and nip
out side shoots as they appear.
Protection:
Do not put plant outside until all risk of frost
is passed.

Summer
May

Growing tips

Compost to use:
A rich, organic, peat-free mix.

4. After the last frost, gradually get the plant
used to the outdoors over a week or two.
5. Cordon varieties: tie to cane as they grow.
Nip out sideshoots as they appear in the joints
between leaf and stem.
6. Fruits will appear and ripen over several weeks.
Pick when well coloured.
7. At the end of the season, put green fruit
in a drawer, with a banana, to ripen.

Tomatoes - Organic Growing Guides for Teachers

  • 1. Tomatoes A tomato plant is a fine thing to grace a sunny patio or balcony; standing tall or tumbling from a basket, dripping with glowing fruits. The fruits come in red, yellow, orange and more, varying from bite-sized to beefsteak. Tomato plants don’t like cold or frost, so must be grown indoors until summer is on its way. A home grown tomato, ripened on the plant, with a journey of just a few steps from plant to plate beats anything you can buy for flavour. If you have a glut, try them slow roasted. Use end of season, unripe tomatoes for fried green tomatoes, or chutney. Suggested pot size : 20-25cm diameter depending on variety Hanging basket : 35cm diameter. All tomatoes can be grown in pots. Choose varieties that are suitable for outdoor growing. ‘Cordon’ varieties grow tall; ‘bush’ varieties trail. Smaller fruited varieties are quickest to crop. Some to try: Gardeners Delight (red fruit) and Sungold (orange fruit): small fruited, cordon varieties. Harbinger: medium sized red fruits; cordon, great flavour from early 20th century. Losetto, Koralik: red fruited bush varieties with some resistance to tomato blight disease. Sow 1. Sow seeds in a shallow tray or pot. Cover lightly with compost. Keep at 20°C. Grow 2. When seedlings are large enough to handle, gently pot up into 15cm pots. Hold by leaves, not the stem. 3. When first flower opens, move into final size container. Add a sturdy cane for ‘cordon’ varieties. Keep in a warm, light place. Eat Spring Apr Jun If you only need a few plants, then buying plants (in April or May) is the simplest option. Or if you want lots, sow seeds in a warm spot (20°C). Grow them indoors until days and nights are warm. Wait until the first flowers open before before putting into a larger pot. Watering tips: Keep the compost moist at all times, but not waterlogged. Full grown fruiting plants may need to be watered twice a day. If fruits go black at the end, this indicates that the compost has dried out at some stage. Support: Tie tall growing ‘cordon’ or vine varieties to a cane, well anchored in the pot, and nip out side shoots as they appear. Protection: Do not put plant outside until all risk of frost is passed. Summer May Growing tips Compost to use: A rich, organic, peat-free mix. 4. After the last frost, gradually get the plant used to the outdoors over a week or two. 5. Cordon varieties: tie to cane as they grow. Nip out sideshoots as they appear in the joints between leaf and stem. 6. Fruits will appear and ripen over several weeks. Pick when well coloured. 7. At the end of the season, put green fruit in a drawer, with a banana, to ripen.
