The variety ‘Alicante’ is a cordon type which is best in the greenhouse, but can be grown outside in a sheltered spot.
We are using some growpots which fit into growbags for planting tomatoes.
The advantage is that the tomato food is targeted on the roots in the inside pot. The outer pot is used for water, and it makes watering much quicker. Water can be left in the outer reservoir to trickle into the growbag when required.
Three growpots fit into one growbag. The tomatoes are planted so that the compost is the same level as the outer chamber. This leaves room for a pint of water to be added to the top of the pot.
