Person Author: Lajos Szabo Calender August 22, 2010 Posted Tags: Comment 72 Comments

Update as of 25/01/2011

As it was so successful, thanks everyone, we have to close our Free seeds for schools campaign.

We have given away thousands of packets of vegetable and flower seeds to primary and secondary schools all over the country.

Please visit this page later on (end of summer) possibly for more free seeds!

Thanks for the interest and have a successful growing season.

We offer free vegetable seeds to schools; please send an email to support at; please write seeds for schools in the subject line of the email;  letting us know the address of the school, we will be able to send the free seeds only to the school address! Depending on popularity we will try our best to help everyone, primary schools are our main priority. We will send a selection of 10-15 packets of seeds, suitable for the young growers.

    My first effort at growing tomatoes was this year, and the variety is Shirley. Easy to grow, delicious, reliable and did I say delicious – much nicer than anything shop bought. Also have San Marzano, Sun Belle, Gardeners Delight and Purple Russian ripening, so am waiting with bated breath to see how they taste!

  • Jane Willis:

    I’ve retweeted your competition but you haven’t actuallysaid what hashtag to use so how will I know you’ve seen my tweet?

  • admin:

    Hi Jane, sorry if it was not clear in the description #seedparade please :)

  • Nicolette King:

    This year I grew Gardeners Delight + Pomodoro Tomatoe II San Marzan Lungo F1 Hybrid. Both grew well + are cropping now. Wish I had grown more. Still learning on quantities to grwo at my allotment.#seedparade.

  • andrew morris:

    I’m a bit of a wimp when it comes to tom’s. I tend to use alisa Craig or moneymaker. The others just don’t seem to produce well in my greenhouse!

  • stuartconnell:

    I have been growing shirley tom.s this year they are so reliable and taste great

  • hazel wynne:

    San marzano, gardeners delight, sun gold there my favourite three, although going to try san marzano lungo next year

  • Linda:

    Hi! I’m a bit of an ol-fashioned gardener and usually grow Moneymaker and the beautifully sweet Gardener’s Delight!

  • free background checks:

    It’s nice blog All the advice I found important. I’ve bookmarked it and will have a look at once again eventually. Thank you.

  • Becky:

    My favourite tomato is the plum tomato. Very sweet in flavour!

  • Helen Lowry:

    I’ve grown Sub Arctic. This is the first year I’ve ever grown tomatoes and they’re just turning red so I’m really excited with the results!

  • Lisa Day:

    This year i grew Gardeners Delight cherry tomatoes and they are some of the best i have tasted.I’ll definately be growing them again.

  • Stephen Soanes:

    Hi, I’ve grown Gardener’s delight and Gartenperle outside this year in tubs and hanging baskets. They both are now starting to turn red, and look wonderful… Can’t wait to use them in a salad.

  • gewinnspiele kostenlos:

    What a great journal. I spend hours on the net reading blogs, about tons of various subjects. I have to first of all give kudos to whoever built your theme and second of all to you for writing what i can only describe as an incredible post. I honestly think there is a ability to writing articles that only very few posses and honestly you got it. The combination of informative and quality content is by all odds extremely rare with the king-sized amount of blogs on the cyberspace.

  • Joanne Downes:

    I have limited space so grew Tumbling Tom in hanging baskets this year. I had a bumper crop and was never without tomatoes. Have even made tomato sauces and put them in the freezer for later on. The green ones are also great in homemade chutney and piccalilli, delicious.

  • peter cleasby:

    Moneymaker – a good reliable crop, tasty enough for me, and not demanding to grow either

  • Susannah Leggatt:

    GOLDEN SUNRAY is an old heirloom variety and one of my fave for flavour, sort of tart and sweet at the same time.

    Although really, any home grown tomato will do, I think the smell of the foliage has something to do with it.

  • pam cooper:

    gardeners delight and was well pleased and some yellow ones dont Know the name as my brother gave me the small plants but they were delicious

  • Susan:

    Gardeners delight – sweet, tasty and always grow well!

    I too grew the tumbling toms this year, in hanging baskets. Abundant crop, and well pleased.

  • Wendy Preece:

    I always plant Moneymaker – they are the best in my opinion, very prolific and very tasty. You just can’t beat home-grown tomatoes.

  • Helen:

    Marmande – very flavoursome and some highly amusing shapes!

  • claire woods:

    Gardeners Delight

  • Ashley:

  • Laura G:

    I’ve grown various types this year including cherry (for just snacking on), marmande (for my new venture of chutney making – & because I find the odd dhapes facinating) and beefsteak (because I love Italy & they remind me of the Italian dish Insalata Caprese – fresh tomato/basil & mossarella….yum!)

  • janet clegg:

  • As we have a Bed and Breakfast Alicante produces wonderful fruit, just the right size with a wonderful taste.

  • We usually grow Gardener’s Delight because they do so well for us, but we tasted some Amana Orange this year. Wow! I normally hate the beefsteak type of tomatoes, but it was fantastic. Definitely going to be growing those next year.
