Tomato - Glacier
As the name suggests, this is a very cold-tolerant variety, capable of withstanding temperatures going down almost to frost. It is an early and very heavy cropper, producing tasty red fruits on semi-bush plants. Height: 150cm. Spread: 50cm.
Start off in a seed tray indoors and plant out in your vegetable plot or in containers. Fill a seed tray with good, free-draining, damp, seed compost. Sow seed on the surface of the compost and cover with a very fine sprinkling of dry vermiculite or finely sieved compost. Place the seed and tray in a propagator or seal inside a polythene bag and keep at around 18-20C until the seeds germinate. This will take about 7-14 days. Don’t exclude light as this helps germination. When the seedlings are large enough to handle, transplant them individually into 7.5cm pots. Plant out into final garden situation or large containers, when the plants reach 20cm high and all risk of frost has passed. Space plants 45cm apart. These semi bush plants do not require side-shooting.
