Sweet Bite Cherry Tomato is a great tasting Cherry tomato variety producing masses of almost 20 cent coin sized fruit for long periods. Use Sweet Bite Cherry Tomatoes in salads, hot dishes or as an ideal snack for packed lunches or just nibbling whilst working in the garden.
Tomatoes grow well in Full Sun, in moist, well drained soils with plenty of air flow around the base.
I always prepare the soil before planting with compost, agriboost, some seaweed solution and then some sugar cane mulch. The last thing i do is plant the tomatoes and then stake them. Once they have reached a certain height, i will give them a feed with some potash to encourage lots of flowers ( which become fruit), but I DON'T regularly feed them throughout their growth, as you will just encourage too much foliage growth, there should have been enough nutrient in the soil when you prepared it to get them going and the potash just finishes them. The only exception is, if we have some bizarre weather, or you didn't put enough nutrient in to begin with and the tomato foliage goes a little yellow, then they are hungry and need a feed with some seaweed solution.
Plant your tomatoes a little deeper than their current height after purchase, then once they grow up to about 40cms, prune away any of the bottom 10cms of foliage to allow air flow around the base and a good spot for companion planting basil, marigolds, nasturtiums and other pest insect repellants.
Stake your tomatoes with a simple teepee of 3 good sized hardwood stakes pushed into ground on an angle around the tomato and then tie the 3 tops together to form a teepee and as the tomato grows up, attach it to the teepee for support.
We will endeavor to have more Tomato Varieties available soon.... 2020 has been a tough year to get the seed supply we require and demand has been crazy high.... we love it and love you interest in gardening from home, but please bear with us, we are working as hard as we can to make sure there is plenty for everybody.
Dill is an annual ( lasts one season) herb with tall finely stiped stems and feathery aromatic blue - green foliage used for flavouring salads, meat dishes, seafood dishes and for pickling. Dill develops yellow flower heads in summer which are followed by pungent dark brown seeds that you can eat, which also make a good breath freshener for some of you stinky gobs out there !!.
Dill can grow to 80cms tall by 40cms wide in full sun to partial shade ( filtered light, NOt full shade) ..... best position is, Dill will thrive in a sunny open position in moist to well drained soils, but, being a dainty / delicate foliaged plant, protect it from strong winds and frosts.
some people dont like dill, if you have never tried it, give it a go, I love dill in potato salad, seafood salads or cucumber salads, it adds a freshness and unique flavour and really jazzes up pickles.
Allium Schoenopraum... better known as Chives are a clump forming perennial with onion flavoured green foliage. Used mostly for culinary purposes, im not going to list them, as you already know or can work that out.... im a grower, not a chef, but like a lot of Herbs, another fact about Chives that a lot of people dont know, is that like most alliums, they get rounded heads of attractive pink - mauve flowers on single stalks.
Chives can grow up to 20cms tall, by 10cms wide in full sun, but can handle partial shade, in moist well drained soils, now as mentined above, Chives are perennial, most people just use them for one season, then throw them away, but if you harvest the leaves regularly or as required and cut them down to 3cms from the base, they will regenerate more foliage to use again and again.... and then in the autumn months if you dig up the clumps, divide them and replant them, you will have more chives for the next spring and onwards. Fertilise in the spring months or liquid feed regularly to get a bushy - vigorous habit.
