Tomato - The Amateur
The Amateur produces medium sized, early ripening fruits about 85g in weight of good flavour and are well cropped on a compact bush plant outdoors. No support required, and it is recommended to grow under a cloche to promote earlier ripening.
Place seed on the surface of a good, free-draining, damp, seed sowing mix and cover with a fine sprinkling of sowing mix or vermiculite. Place in a propagator at a constant temperature of around 18-20C until after germination, which takes 7-14 days. Transplant seedlings when large enough to handle into 7.5cm pots. Plant in final situation when 2cm high, 45cm apart. This is a bush variety and will not require the removal of side shoots.
