Growing Crimson Crush Tomatoes

Plants can be grown outdoors or in a cold greenhouse.

They like moist but well-drained, fertile soil. It's better to give a thorough watering two or three times a week than a dribble every day. Inconsistent watering leads to blossom end rot and split fruit. Water the soil only, as leaves and stems dislike getting wet. Feed weekly once flowers form.

When growing outdoors, harden off and plant out after all risk of frost has passed, when first flowers are showing. When planting into a bed, add compost or well-rotted manure and use ring culture pots. Plant deep, 0.5cm below the seed leaves, so that roots form from the stems.

For containers, use a minimum 5 litre or 22.5cm diameter pot and fill with peat-free compost. Our veg gro bags accommodate three or four plants.

Planting Companions

To ward off pests naturally, grow tomatoes with basil, chives, garlic, and potted mint to ward off aphids. Some people use French Marigolds against whitefly, and nasturtiums as a "sacrificial" plant to draw aphids away from your crops.
In turn, tomatoes help deter pests from gooseberries and black spot from roses.

Do not plant tomatoes next to anything in the Brassica (cabbage) family, Dill (small plants are fine, but not mature ones grown for their seeds), Fennel, or any tomato cousins in the Solanaceae (nightshade) family like aubergine, peppers, or potatoes.

Did You Know?

Bred by Simon Crawford, pioneer of the best bush tomatoes, in collaboration with Bangor University. It has both the PH2 and PH3 genes, which between them confer resistance to the types of blight that are a problem in the British climate, including the Pink 6 and Blue 13 blights that have caused so much damage in recent years.
