Tomato Plants Direct – The Tomato Specialists.

Its Time To Get Those Orders In Folks !!

Apologies if you tried to order today (Saturday 13th) and got an error message I upgraded to a bigger package with my website hosts and in doing so it knocked out the security certificate It has all now been rectified by Siteground and is back up and running again.

Please Note April Delivery is no longer an available option

Welcome to the Tomato Plants Direct website.
As the UK’s Tomato Specialists you won’t find as big a range of Tomatoes and other veg anywhere in the UK as plants by mail order.

With over 800 varieties of Tomato listed and over 400 other veg we have a plant for every growing situation and any space.

I have Just moved to much bigger premesis with 4 times the space I have had for the last 6 years which will allow me to grow many more plants and tighten up on delivery times and a new propagation tunnel has been put up inside the huge tunnel I am renting to give me heated growing space to start sowing earlier.

If you have read my reviews and are unsure about placing an order then please read my blog post on reviews and hopefully that will explain things more for you and allay any fears you may have about ordering. Click Here
All my plants are grown in Organic wool and bracken compost which is the best compost I have ever used and the plants are grown in 6cm or 8cm coir pots depending on the plants – See below for more info on this.
Not sure if you have the knowledge ? I have that covered too pre-sign up now for my Tomato growing course coming soon or join my facebook advice group

Great news the wool compost that we use is now certified Organic by the Soil Association
We use wool compost to plant all our plants in which is made by a company in cumbria from Wool, Bracken and Horse Manure
Buy Wool Compost Here

All of my tomatoes are grown in wool compost which is made from a mix of Bracken, Wool and Horse manure by a company in the lake district.

The wool slow releases Nitrogen and Bracken slow releases Potash meaning the plants need very little feeding during the season. I warn you its not cheap but the results are stunning and what you spend on the compost you will gain back in using less if any at all liquid feeding throughout the season and increased yields.

Most tomatoes are grown and shipped in 6cm coir pots when the plants are at an early stage they are sent in blister packs made from recycled plastic that can be recycled again later in the season,

When the plants are larger they are sent wrapped in corrugated card Cucumbers and Courgettes are also shipped in 6cm coir pots or a jumbo plug the same size as the 6cm pots,

The herbs, Peppers and Aubergines are all grown and sold in 9cm pots or I may do them in 8cm Coir Pots this year as well as all the dwarf/patio tomato varieties

Orders Update 2nd April

It is likely that I will start dispatching the week after next if there is enough ready some varieties are more advanced than others

And I will be picking and packing orders for more hours a day than previous years and have just advertised for a packer and if necessary will take on a second one as well.

This season growing in a polytunnel for the first time as opposed to glass I wasn’t sure how things would go and if it would alter things at all so far its gone pretty well just a little behind where I wanted to be but that was more the delay getting the propagation tunnel ready after the greenhouse didn’t get delivered.

on the whole the tomatoes in petri dishes are little bit behind those sown in the plug trays But they will soon catch up as I pot them as they have very good roots on them

Virtually all tomatoes that have been sold have now been sown and are growing there are just a small number I will be sowing tomorrow and these late ones I will direct sow in the pots to speed the process up.

Germination on the wole has been pretty good there are a few I need to sow more of later orders

The first batch of Aubergines and Hot peppers I sowed at home because the tunnel wasn’t ready were very patchy but ive got enough of all but a few varieties potted to cover what I need and their is a big batch of both ready for potting to fulfill any short fall and for later orders

Sweet Peppers are a bit behind But should be ready in a few weeks and I haven’t got that many early ones to go out

Ive already decided that because the sowing tunnel has been so successfull I will buy another one and put next to it before the end of the year then sow the Aubergines and Peppers in Late December and the Tomatoes from late Jan/Early Feb as some of you want them early that way I can go back to mid march onwards for delivery then for those that want it. it wasnt possible to do that for this year
