Bred in Scotland and first introduced in 1908, Ailsa Craig, a cordon type of tomato, has stood the test of time and is still one of the most widely grown tomatoes. It is tough, reliable and early to fruit with an excellent deep tomato flavour.   Being an older variety, Ailsa Craig has good disease resistance and can be grown outside as well as in the greenhouse. 
*A cordon type of tomato means that there is one main stem that grows, and any side shoots are removed as they appear. Cordon varieties will need staking and tying in as they grow.
The side shoots appear just above where the leaves meet the main stem. Pinching these out will result in more fruits rather than leaves.

Size guide - Pack of 5 Vegetable Plug Plants 

Our vegetable plugs are healthy, strong plugs in mini-plugs of compost. Will need to be transplanted and grown on before planting out. Tender varieties will need protecting from frost.   Compost volume around 2.5 – 3.5cm deep x 1.5 - 3cm square. Foliage height 1.5cm-5cm (depending on variety). Full growing instructions are provided

Tomatoes are very susceptible to cold when they are young so pot on your plug plants initially into 10cm pots and keep them in a frost-free spot or windowsill.
Once your tomato plugs are potted up and labelled, water in well and continue to water evenly not allowing the compost to dry out, potting on to a larger pot as necessary if they outgrow the pot.
When the danger of frost has passed in your area, plant two tomatoes per growbag or 45cm apart in a humus-rich compost that is moisture retentive in full sun. 
Start feeding weekly with a good quality tomato feed like Neudorff Organic Tomato Feed | 1 ltr.
 once you see 3-4 tomato fruits. Restricting the trusses to six per plant will ensure quality over quantity.
