Gotta' Collect 'Em All!
'Juliet' Collector Tomatoes
If you weren't able to get the tomatoes you needed when the first full set up of collector tomatoes was set up, we will be bringing out the second planting into location on Friday morning, with over 100 varieties.
Again this year we have divided the collection into three categories due to the ever increasing numbers of new varieties. Besides our general selection, we will have an Heirloom section, and a section of hanging tomato basket varieties, available in 2.5" pots for easy planting, all located on both sides of the aisle of A17 north. For hanging baskets, besides 'Tumbler', we found 'Sunset Falls' to be a vigorous heavy producer of bigger red and yellow striped grape tomatoes with really good flavour.
Newer Varieties for this season include:
Golden Cherry (Labelled Husky Cherry Gold) -A cherry tomato variety from Veseys Seeds, that in last year's trials equalled or even beat Sweet Orange in flavour, a variety we thought was our best tasting tomato.
Nectar - An ultra sweet, high in sugar but low in acid, cherry tomato that vigorously produces clusters of about 18-20 half ounce fruits.
Orange Zinger - A dark orange larger cherry tomato with a well balanced sweet-tangy flavour. We had a huge production in our trials.
Sugar Rush - Super sweet, elongated fruit with one of the highest Brix (sugar) ratings. Fast Maturing and very productive.
Steakhouse - Extra large Beefsteak type, similar to Porterhouse.
Sugar Gloss - A bright red cherry tomato with a very high sugar content. Fruits form on really long dual trusses, producing up to 40 tomatoes.
There is still an excellent assortment of Potunia wallbags to brighten up sunny locations on a patio or entry wall space. They are hanging on the wall in section 'C'.
Potunias are a unique breed of Petunias with a mounding, compact growth habit. They hold a canopy of flowers all season long, and are available in the full spectrum of Petunia colours.

Our 16" Fibre Hanging Pots are ready!
This season we planted the 16" Fibre pots in a mix for a sun location and they are really starting to look great. With a combination of over 25 plants in each one, you could remove the wires and drop these into an existing pot or hang it up and watch it cover the fibre pot in no time at all. A selection of the remaining 110 Fibre hanging pots will be at A1 North and South at 10 am on Friday morning.
