Tomato Gazzy – Beefstake Indeterminate (cordon) F1 – 9cm pot
TOMATO Gazzy is a vigorous and fleshy yellow ‘beefsteak’ variety. Attractive and tasty with a good texture, fruits can reach 350gm each. Beefstake tomatoes are ideal for stuffing and baking and these are a meal on their own.
As with all tomatoes, dont plant out until the last frosts are over, they are not tough enough to withstand a frost and also need a sheltered spot away from harsh wind. Whether you are growing tomatoes in a pot or in the ground they are very thirsty plants having to use a great deal of energy to produce their flowers and so fruit. Water often and thoroughly concentrating on the base of the plant, this will encourage a strong deep root system, this will keep the plant stable.
Tomatoes are divided into two main types: cordon (indeterminate) or bush (determinate). This identifies how the plant grows. Cordon types grow as single-stemmed plants. They grow to heights of up to 2.5m and require support and regular pruning of sideshoots.
Start feeding as soon as the first trusses have set with a high potash feed. Obviously, here at Enchanted Gardens we would absolutely recommend an Organic Tomato Food.
