CHERRY PICKED

Country Living (UK) - - Rural Issues -

Who doesn’t love a tiny sweet tomato, es­pe­cially when grown within easy pluck­ing dis­tance in a hang­ing bas­ket? Com­pact and bushy trail­ing va­ri­eties such as ‘Tum­bler’ and ‘Tum­bling Tom Red’ are tried and tested, and they give a juicy, long-last­ing crop, pro­vided you keep them fed and wa­tered. You can buy them as small plants now. In­tro­duced by Sut­tons, ‘Tum­bling Bella’ (left) is an im­proved ver­sion of ‘Tum­bler’. Three su­per plug plants cost £5.99, or £12.99 in­clud­ing a wicker hang­ing bas­ket to grow them in (0844 326 2200; sut­tons.co.uk).
