Product Information

Biting into a sweet, juicy cherry tomato on a summer's day is hard to beat! They taste so much better fresh, and they should be eaten warm - when the aromatics in them are at their most active, to give the best flavour.

Growing tomatoes is easy and incredibly rewarding - make salads and chutneys, or of course eat them fresh. 'Tumbling Tom' is the ideal variety to get started growing your own tomatoes - so easy in hanging baskets, tubs, planters and even window boxes - you will get hundreds of small red cherry tomatoes per plant in summer. Get the children growing them!

They are self-branching, so other than pinching the tip out when you plant, there is no need to do anything else to them, unlike other tomato varieties. Tumbling Tom produces a massive crop of firm, round fruit all summer long - each one packed with sweet, delicious juice. Perfect fresh and in salads.

Top Tips

Fill in gaps in containers with sun-loving herbs such as basil or plant nasturtiums to trail over the sides. You could also add a pepper plant to the middle of your pot or basket for added height and interest.

Care Information

Planting Advice for Tumbling Tomatoes

  • Once the plants are 10cm tall, they can be planted in the hanging basket or container, ideally using 1 plant for a 25cm basket or 3 in a 35cm basket.
  • Tomatoes can be planted up into their containers from April onwards, and grown on for a couple of weeks before placing outside after hardening off. Cover plants with horticultural fleece on any unexpectedly cold nights.
  • Fill containers to within 2-3cm (about 1in) of the rim with moist compost - growing bag compost or our own professional compost is ideal.
  • Bury the roots deeply (up to first ‘seed’ leaves on the stem) and water well, to settle the compost around them.
  • Place the containers in a sunny sheltered spot.


 

Aftercare advice for your tumbling toms

  • Water regularly to keep the compost moist - at least once a day in hot weather when the plants grow larger.
  • As soon as fruits start to form, feed the plants regularly with a liquid tomato food.
  • Remove old leaves as they yellow to let in light and air.

 

Picking your tomatoes

  • Let the fruits get really ripe before you pick them to maximise their taste - the first ones should be ready from the end of July
