What’s the best tasting Tomato? - Sep 03, 2021
Spring is the best time to garden
Dear gardening friends
We have survived the first week of Call and Collect. I can't lie, it's hell.
We are running here, to keep up with phone calls, and orders. Most times you can pick up the same day. We have deliveries now too.
But the system gets thrown out the window, when customers come to the nursery, and try and order. We can't do carpark sales.
Please don't upset our staff, and system.
Phone 46267022 from home.
Lots of great plants have arrived.
We have all your favourite Tomatoes.
Tim's Fruit Fly Resistant Tomato is our best seller by far. This heirloom variety has apricot sized tomatoes that have a natural resistance to fruit fly. One plant can produce 100s of Tomatoes.
Plants cost $4.75.
But my favourite variety is Tim's Italian Tomato. This large pear shaped tomato has thick flesh, and hardly any seeds.
It's a taste sensation.
Pick the fruit when they turn yellowish green and ripen inside on the window sill.
The taste is amazing.
Simply cut up, drizzle with olive oil.
Add lots of salt, stir.
Eat at room temperature.
Plants cost $4.75.
When you're ordering Tomatoes don't forget about your other veggie seedlings too. We have Cucumbers, Corn, Zucchini, Beetroot, Celery, Capsicum, Eggplant, Lettuce, Basil, Silverbeet, Spinach, Shallots, Chives, and strawberries to name but a few.
Simply phone us, and we will pick you the best plants. Some seedlings are very small.
This is because sales are exceeding supply.
Suck it up, they will grow.
Water morning and night.
Don't forget the snail pellets!!!
