    Green house cherry tomatoes recently planted in their final position, plus a few duplicates waiting for a good home, I've not put in any supports yet! A bit scruffy looking as they are all that little bit different in growth to each other.

      What size in litres do you eventually pot your micros in.

        What Brad Gates variety is this? They are not usually ultra early, so one that does flower this early is excellent news. A lovely looking plant, Jayb.

        All Brad Gates tomatoes that I have grown so far had really great, strong flavours. Often with surprising flavour accents like the pronounced citrus flavour of Yellow Furry Hog for example. They are a bit special and not widely known in the UK.

          Sorry I'm so slow in answering, the micros go into 1 litre pots, sometimes 2litre if I am only growing a few of them.

            And how deep (tall?) are the pots?

            I'll have to check for you later, but I'd have thought around 6" high.

          It's a new one called Lovely Lush http://shop.wildboarfarms.com/LOVELY...LOVELYLUSH.htm

          Yes it was a bit of a surprise to see it flowering first, wonder if it will set and mature quickly too?. I've started quite a few striped varieties this year, many are Wild Boar Farms, looking forward to them nom nom!

                Young variegated mini dwarf, colour is only just starting to show, I think this one is either the Mivvi line or Little Big Chocolate Yum

                  One of my cherry type picks for this year 'Melzane', which is the name it came to me under. It is a segregating variety and I'm looking for little pear shaped, striped fruit with or without antho.

                  Leaves have quite a lot of colour.

                    Greenhouse cherry tomato progress, I only managed to add strings in the week, so some are a bit floppy with bent stems. They should soon straighten up though.

                    Picture taken yesterday.

                      These looked so pretty this morning with the dew loaded up on them, highlighting the hairs on the woolly leaves. First night out, but I think some will be potted up and grown on in the greenhouse.
