Tomato - Losetto F1 Hybrid
Losetto is the first of its kind! It is an outstanding new cascading bush tomato with built-in blight resistance, producing masses of sweet and juicy cherry tomatoes that can be harvested over a long period from July to September. It is perfect for containers or planters in the greenhouse or on the patio, but can also be planted in a sunny spot in the garden. Height and spread: 30cm.
For greenhouse cultivation, sow from February to March or outdoors from March to April. Sow seeds on the surface of a good, free-draining, damp, seed sowing mix and cover with a fine sprinkling of compost or vermiculite. Place seed trays in a propagator at a constant temperature of around 15-20C until after germination, which takes 7-14 days. When seedlings gain 2 true leaves, transplant into individual 7.5cm pots of compost and grow on at a minimum temperature of 15C. When growing tomatoes outdoors, wait until all risk of frost has passed before transplanting tomatoes. Gradually acclimatise them to outdoor conditions over 7 - 10 days before planting out from early June when tomato plants are 20cm tall. Choose a sheltered position in full sun on fertile, reliably moist, well-drained soil, and transplant at a distance of 60cm apart. Bush tomatoes do not require staking or side-shooting. Water tomato plants frequently, to keep the compost evenly moist. Feed tomatoes regularly with a high potash plant food once the first truss of fruit has formed.
