Tomato Moneymaker – Indeterminate (cordon) – 9cm pot

MoneyMaker is open pollinated and will grow true from saved seed, which is why we love it so much.

MoneyMaker dates back over 100 years, to 1913. Over the last 80 years it has probably been the most popular tomato grown in the UK although its popularity is slightly less nowadays. The key virtue of this variety is reliability even when soil and weather conditions are not ideal. It also has good disease resistance.

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.
