Tomato - Moneymaker
Moneymaker is probably the most famous variety of tomato. It is well-known for its heavy crops of medium size, red fruit. It is a very reliable variety to grow. This variety first rose to fame (as such) in the 60's and 70's for its flavour and uniformity and has been a much loved variety by home gardeners ever since.
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 18â€“21Â°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 require side-shooting and support for the best yields. Water and feed plants regularly with a high potash feed once the first truss has set. Ready to harvest from July to October.
