Tomato Heirloom 'Rouge de Marmande'
Lycopersicon esculentum

DESCRIPTION: Vigorous climbing variety producing full flavoured large, beefy tomatoes early in the season.  
PLANTING: Spring-Summer and Winter in warmer locations. Sow seeds directly into their final position or seed trays. Transplant when seedlings are easily handled, 10-15cm. A full sun location in free draining soil is ideal. For smaller gardens grow bags are perfect, place on a sunny balcony to enjoy a bumper crop.
USE IN: Almost anywhere in the kitchen! Ideal grilled, in salads, sauces and sandwiches. The perfect partner to basil and pasta for a quick supper.
CARE: Water seedlings daily until established and follow up with regular water especially during dry periods. Pinch out lower water shoots and keep two main stems. Use stakes to support plants and fruit as they mature. Mulch plants and apply liquid fertiliser regularly for best results. Protect plants from frost. If insects are a ever a problem use an organic insecticide like eco-oil, it's safe to use on veggies! For the more adventurous home gardeners try companion planting with marigolds or chives, the natural oils help to deter unwanted visitors.
