For those of you just joining me, I’m conducting a seed grown versus grafted tomato plant trial for Huntingdon Graden & Leisure Centre, Ali (seed) and Ele (graft).
This first update sees Ali and Ele both adding a few centimetres since they first arrived home (5/5). Ele is now measuring 55cm (added 6cm) and Ali is now measuring 35cm (added 8cm). Ele has 2 trusses developing so far, Ali has one.
Now they are all settled in I’ve given them their first feed today.
Their friend’s a cherry bush variety, we’re calling Sweetie, my daughter planted up at Huntingdon Garden & Leisure’s Free Kids Club – Grow your own tomatoes (5/5).
