British Tomato Week 20th-26th May

It is time to celebrate British Tomato Week, which was originally launched by the British Tomato Growers Assocation. This association of tomato growers emphasise that they grow tomatoes naturally in a way that protects the environment and promotes good health to the public. They grow in glasshouses, which means that they are protected from the cold but revealed enough to soak up the sunshine that they need.

There are of course different types of tomatoes! The standard, rounded tomato is most well known. Then we have the small version of this tomato, known as the cherry, often sweet in taste. The beefsteak sounds like its name – its a lot beefier and bigger than the standard! And what about a tomato that also matches its name – Oxheart; it really is shaped like a heart! They can also come in different colours – from dark red, to orange to green! Contrary to what people might think, the colour doesn’t have much affect on the taste but they all include lots of nutrients.

Why not start growing your own tomatoes? We have a wide variety of tomato plants for you to grow and harvest yourselves from only 99p!
