Sowing Tomatoes

These are the varieties of tomatoes I have just sown in the modules. The air temperature of - 3°C and the cold sleet prevented me to do it outside but, never mind. This year I used Mr Fothergill's and T&M seeds.

This is the list of varieties:
'Garden Pearl'
'Golden Sunrise'
'San Marzano'
'Black Russian'

As the weather conditions were unfavourable to do the job outside, I prepared the modules the day before sowing. I put them into the house to warm up the sowing substrate. The seeds were soaked in the chamomile tea for 12 hours.

I put them in the veranda on the southern side of the house where they receive enough light and warmth to grow.

I also have sown hot pepper 'Cayennetta', pepper 'Grill Red', chilli 'Jalapeno' and aubergine 'Patio Mix'.


  1. Our tomatoes will be going in soon and living in a spare bedroom for a while.

  2. Home grown tomatoes, lovely. So much better than the tasteless ones from the supermarket.
