Tomato - Red Alert
Red Alert is one of the best of all varieties of tomato for flavour. It produces high quality fruits on spreading plants which are very early into production. This type of tomato is definitely highly recommended.
Sow from January to April, under glass 0.5cm deep in pots or trays of good seed sowing compost and lightly cover with a sprinkling of vermiculite or compost. Place containers in a propagator at a temperature of 18–21°C. Prick out seedlings, once large enough to handle, into 9cm (3 1/2in) pots. Transplant to the greenhouse border soil, or individual large pots, or 3 plants per growbag when 20cm (8in) high. Can also be planted outdoors once all risk of frost has past. Plants have a bushy habit and do not require side-shooting. Water and feed plants regularly with a high potash feed once the first truss has set. Ready to harvest from July to October.
