Gardener's Delight, like its name would suggest is one of the most popular varieties producing trusses with large crops of small fruits but with an outstanding tangy flavour. Very popular with the home gardener of today because of its reliable and prolific nature.

 

WHEN TO SOW

January to April

 

Where to Sow

Sow seeds underglass 0.5cm(1/4 in) deep in pots or trays of good seed sowing compost and lightly cover with a sprinkling of vermiculite or compost. Place containers in a propagator at a temperature of 18–21°C .

 

What to do next

Prick out seedlings, once large enough to handle, into 9cm (3 1/2in) pots. Transplant to the greenhouse border soil, or individual large pots, or 3 plants per growbag when 20cm (8in) high. Can also be planted outdoors once all risk of frost has past. Plants require sideshooting and support for the best yields. Water and feed plants regularly with a high potash feed once the first truss has set.

 

MATURITY

July to October

 

HANDY TIP

If growing outside, pinch out the growing tip after 4-5 trusses of fruit have set.

 

NUTRITIONAL VALUE

High in vitamin C and lycopene.

 

TYPE

Indeterminate - single stem, remove side shoots.
