    Default Dwarf Tomatoes

    I'm looking for dwarf tomatoes, in particular
    - Dwarf Gem Tomato
    - Micro Tom
    - Tiny Tim
    - Polar Baby
    - Elfin Tomato
    - Cherry Gold
    - Whippersnapper.

    Can offer the usual SAE or can PM you a list of tomato seeds or veg seeds (mostly heirloom varieties), thanks.

    No worries, Thea. I had a daft idea for a wee experiment - commercial hydroponic tomato growers start their toms off on 1st November. My idea was move a self watering planter (use it like a a mini Auto Pot) onto my butchers block in my kitchen and plant mini toms in it. There is a reason why my ideas are best kept inside my head

    I'll have Dwarf Wax and Texas Wild - only a few mind - in a few days as I got the toms last week and will be scooping, soaking and drying this week....if you want a couple of each sending.

    [I'm not tight - only got 2 of each and they are quite biddy so not many seeds in each]

    I tried saving my own tomato seed last year but none were viable - can you give me some pointers please?

    If you have a look under the Tomato Seed Saving Section....it's really easy. Put in water for 3 days, strain and dry. Then put into seed packets and share.
