Grafted Tomatoes

Our 12cm Tomato plants are grafted onto a rootstock called Spirit F1 Hybrid. The benefit of the rootstock is that the variety grafted onto the rootstock will have more vigorous growth and added disease resistance. The rootstock has resistance to a number of known tomato diseases which will benefit the plant and lead to heavier cropping and less reliance on chemicals for disease control.

Plant Care

Our selections are suitable for both garden and container cultivation. With containers it is important to use a quality container mix that has been adjusted for pH and contains fertiliser. We would recommend either top dressing with a slow release fertiliser such as osmocote or liquid feeding on a regular basis. Further information is available from publications such as the Yates Garden Guide.
It is important to be vigilant for pests and diseases and then consult your local plant retailer for advice.
