The collection includes 3 x 9cm well established grafted plants, 1 each of the following varieties:
Shirley F1 (Medium) - The D.T. Brown favourite! Tried and tested to deliver sweet and juicy tomatoes from heavy cropping plants. Early to mature and very reliable.
Supersweet F1 (Cherry) - An amazing crop of small red cherry tomatoes which have super sweet taste. This prolific fruiter was also in the top three of the 2007 Tastiest Tomato competition.
Buffalo Steak F1 (Beefsteak) - A cut above the rest! These beefsteak tomatoes are meaty with bright red flesh and an old-fashioned tomato flavour. Early and more productive than many similar varieties with the beefsteak name. Vigorous plants start producing early and continue throughout a long growing season. Indeterminate.
Grafted vegetable plants offer us gardeners’ plants which have greater vigour and much more resistance to soil borne pests and diseases, such as nematodes – particularly useful if you grow in the greenhouse border soil each year, where crop rotation is somewhat limited! The grafting process brings together the best attributes of two different plants – a species rootstock and a hybrid variety. The hybrid variety is grafted to the species rootstock to produce plants which are strong and vigorous, which in turn, produce more fruits and heavier yields. Although traditionally greenhouse grown, we have found, over the last few years, that plants, if placed in a warm and sunny position, will also crop well outside too – even more reason to grow them!
