    Anyone having probs with germination of toms??
    I must be doing something wrong.
    Nothing up yet for La Carotina or Peace Vine.
    Dancing with Smurfs and Thompson’s Seedless grape germinated like billyo.

    I'm new to indoor tomatoes but plan to sow these varieties today:
    orange banana, red buffalo horn, kenilworth king George, blush, black cherry, white cherry.
    They will all be grown together can anyone advise if I will have issues with cross-pollination please?
    Outdoors I will be growing gardeners delight, black cherry and outdoor girl.
    You will have no problems with them.

    #just Incase you didn't know -Kenilworth tomato is a Bush - so no side shooting required. It's a lovely tasting variety and well worth trying.

    How are you sowing them? Heated propagator or indoors on a windowsill?

    Heated propagator.
    I didn’t sow all of them though - saved a few of each.
    Should I try them on the windowsill?

    Hmm, heated prop should be perfect. I would try again making sure the pots don't dry out.

    Thanks Scarlet I have a few seedlings of each now, I just need to find some space in the house and pot them on. Thanks for the info on Kenilworth I didn't know.

    I don't grow many bush toms but I think that's one that's worth a shot!

    EDIT - IGNORE MY COMMENTS - it is NOT a Bush Tom ( sorry, I did partake in a glass last night!)

    Read my review here #post 115

    Interested in having a go at grafting toms. Any suggestions please for a variety and source of a good rootstock seed?
    Have seen the Sutton’s grafted veg in a local Garden Centre - VERY expensive - and I’d just like to try it and see what the difference is between a “normal” seed raised variety and the same variety grafted on to a tough old rootstock.
