Tips & tricks: These varieties are particularly suited to growing in pots. Nonetheless, tomatoes are hungry & thirsty plants, so use good quality compost and pots that are at least 30cm deep. Cover the surface of the soil with a layer of mulch such as woodchips or hay to hold moisture in.

You can add homemade fertiliser or worm castings from your wormenbak throughout the year to keep them well fed.
