Grafted Tomato Plant - F1 Elegance

5 Review(s) with an average rating of:
4.8

A vigorous growing variety, producing heavy trusses of standard size tomatoes of fine colour and flavour. (Cordon variety - one stem grown by pinching off side-shoots as they appear, needs staking and tying in.) Supplied in a 10cm pot.

What's so good about grafted veg plants? We are revolutionising the home grown vegetable market with our range of grafted vegetable plants! Commercially the grafting method has been used for some time, but we've developed them for the home gardener, and early adopters have had extraordinary results: • Big increases in yield from larger, more vigorous plants • Earlier cropping, yet with sufficient vigour to crop well later in the season • Grow in the greenhouse or outdoors - little or no heating required • Excellent resistance to soil-borne pest and diseases - no more ring culture or grow bags - plant straight in the soil • Greater tolerance to nutritional disorders

Tomatoes - We have selected leading commercial varieties and some traditional favourites - chosen for their fruit quality and taste - and grafted them, under carefully controlled conditions. Note that grafted tomatoes are not suitable for grow bags. An improved technique for tomato grafting - Since 2012, all our grafted tomato varieties now use this new technique which leads to even earlier and bigger crops, with fruiting beginning lower on the stems, producing at least one extra fruit truss per plant during the season!

Please note: There is a possibility that your plant will include a grafting clip, if it does, this is an integral part of the grafting process and that it should be left in place. As the plant grows it will naturally shrug off the clip.

On Arrival - Remove the plants from the box as soon as they arrive and check that the compost is adequately moist, watering if necessary with tepid water. Leave them on a shaded windowsill or in a greenhouse for a few hours to settle before further handling, ensuring a frost-free non-draughty situation. Potting On - These plants should be potted on as soon as possible, but they will keep quite well for 2–3 days if necessary, provided they are kept in a warm light place and are not allowed to dry out. Use 10cm (4") pots and a good quality moist proprietary compost and set the plants so that the top of the root ball is level with the compost surface. After potting, give a thorough watering, but thereafter take care to avoid overwet conditions, particularly as the young plants become re-established. Grow on in a light, humid position, and maintain an initial temperature of 16–18˚C (60–65˚F).

1 plant, 1 stem, 1 variety and at least 6-8 trusses.

Really impressed, these are prolific growers. You really need to keep an eye on these to avoid unwanted side-shoots which grow quicker than normal tomatoes and are hidden by the large leaves. These are best planted in the ground as they consume a lot of water and need good root room. You also need to cane them well and tie them frequently as they grow so quickly and tall. Mine collapsed under its own weight in the end; a fate I intend avoiding next year by more aggressive use canes and ties.

This is undoubtedly the best tomato I have ever grown. I stopped the plant at 7 trusses and had a veritable abundance of fruit from it. I look forward to growing them again next year. Thank you Suttons...excellent quality plant.
