Sweet Million Cherry Tomato Seedling Plants, p9 pots.

Sweet Million is a heavy cropping cherry tomato that produces large trusses of up to 50 small to medium-sized fruits from July to the beginning of autumn. It's reliable and easy to grow outdoors in a sunny spot. The delicious, sweet fruits last well on the plant, giving you a bit more time to pick them and eat them straight off it, which is the primary use for most people, but they are also great for sauces, bottling and other preservation. If you plant enough, maybe four thousand or so, you are bound to get a million tomatoes. It is more reliable and less prone to cracking than Supersweet 100, but not quite as flavoursome.

Growing Sweet Million Tomatoes

Plant in growbags or in fertile soil in roomy pots, in a greenhouse is always best, and if outdoors then always after the last frosts have passed in mid-May, maybe early June. If you're growing under glass, you can plant in early May.

Fertile soil means a dedicated grow-bag, or garden soil or raised beds that have been enriched with compost, leafmould, worm castings, and a little bit of well-rotted manure.

Space plants at 50cm intervals and water in well. Always give tomatoes a good sunny spot in a sheltered position for the best chance of ripening. This variety will cope well with lacklustre summers and 75% sun, especially if it gets the midday sun.

In spring, acclimatise small plants to the outdoors gradually rather than planting out straight away, to prevent sulking or keeling over dead. Start off with a few hours outside each day, working up to spending the night outdoors over the course of a week or two. This will make them sturdy enough to cope with the change in air temperature, although continued protection against slugs and snails will probably be necessary.

Once planted, stake your tomatoes and tie in as they grow. You'll also need to be vigilant with any side shoots, pinching them out in the axil between the main stem and the leaf. This will stop the plant wasting energy on foliage. Pinch out the growing tip of the plant in late summer when it reaches around 1.6m or you'll find trusses hard to reach at harvest time.

Watering is crucial with tomatoes. Regular, not daily (unless they are in a grow-bag on a hot patio which is at risk of drying out in mid-summer heat waves) and consistent is the key to prevent split skins: don't let them dry out and don't overwater. Once the first truss of fruits has set, feed fortnightly using a liquid tomato food or comfrey tea.

As your tomatoes ripen, it can be a good idea to snip off any large leaves shading the tomatoes, especially later in the season.

Planting Companions for Tomatoes

Pot marigolds around your tomatoes can repel whitefly and attract pollinating hoverflies. Some say basil will repel insects as well; either way, the combination is worth trying for its pleasing recreation of a Napoli pizzeria in kitchen garden form.

Did you know?

Tomatoes come from Peru, where in the wild they thrive in the warm, damp lowlands between the Pacific Ocean and the Andes.

They were regarded with the utmost suspicion until the mid-18th century, until US president Thomas Jefferson started growing them in his garden at Monticello, Virginia (now a UNESCO World Heritage site). After this, they quickly became popular to eat.

Like potatoes (and the gorgeous potato vine Solanum), tomatoes are members of the Solanum family. Both can suffer from blight, so never grow the two close together, and don't follow one with the other in your crop rotation scheme either.

Fried green tomatoes is a classic dish in the American South. Tasty, simple, and it uses up the immature fruit that are invariably left straggling around October. Dredge thick slices or halved cherry tomatoes in flour, then dip first in beaten egg, then in cornmeal (polenta). Fry in batches turning halfway, until golden and crisp. Sprinkle with salt, pepper and chilli to taste. Personally, I love them combined with roast or fried potato, and a shredded cheese.
