Miracle Gro-Gro-ables cherry tomato seed pod


When visiting a nearby garden centre 3 weeks ago I was given this seed pod in a pot as there was a promotion on. I took it home, watered it every day and am not too impressed with the results so far. Have patience I hear you say! Just wondered if anyone is growing or has grown them?

Looks a bit dry to me. I don't get on with these peat plug things, unless they are kept damp the roots can't get out through the sides. Is it sitting on the top of the compost or in it?
I am sure you will get much more advice from people who are knowledgeable on growing tomatoes.

That looks about right for three weeks to me. Pot them on as soon as they get the next set of leaves. (Either that or remove two of them, which seems a waste.)

I hate the advert for this product. it implies push it in the soil/compost [outside in Britain at this time of year I ask you!] water and you will be eating lots of tomatoes.
I wonder how many people will be disappointed with this product.

they seem healthy enough Amsterdam but 3 together is very close together.

Yeah- I'm not convinced either. Will pot them up but as I haven't got a greenhouse they'll have to fight for space in kitchen windowsill.
