Potting on

Three pots of Tomato Cheetham’s Potato Leaf, all sown at the same time but potted on at different dates. The plant in the largest pot has grown significantly since it was potted up. It will stay in that pot right through to harvest and is in a suitable richer compost mix. Being in a pot means we can bring it inside if adverse weather looms. The middle sized pot contains a plant only potted on earlier this week, but already it is starting to out pace the smaller one. This plant will be planted out in the garden bed once the weather is safe enough. The smallest pot was where we first pricked out the seedlings. The roots are now filling the pot and we will shortly be giving it away. Potting on delivers real benefits, but depends on having enough pots of a suitable size and the compost to fill them. We will be growing one of each of seven varieties in the large pots and planting out two of each variety.
