Tomato - Ferline F1 Hybrid
This is a remarkable tomato variety. In recent trials Tomato Ferline has shown impressive blight tolerance in a garden situation. Tomato Ferline could be the answer to many gardeners' prayers, to help overcome this most destructive disease. The vigorous, indeterminate plants produce heavy crops of deep red fruits of up to 150gm in weight with a very good flavour. It is also resistant to fusarium and verticillium wilt.
Sow seeds from late winter to early spring. Sow seed 1.5mm deep. Germination usually takes 6-14 days at 24-27C. Transplant the seedlings when large enough to handle into 8cm pots and plant out into grow bags or pots when large enough at 45-60cm apart. Provide adequate support and tie in regularly. Remove all side shoots as they appear and restrict the plant to one main stem. Feed weekly with a high potash liquid fertiliser and water only moderately.
