When I'm not on my bike, you'll find me in my organic-ish garden in #Cumbria. Favourite plants? Wisteria, hellebores, paeonies, philadelphus...

Solanum lycopersicum 'Tumbling Tom'

That is a good question Sarah...🤔 I’ve had it for years and have usually put a couple of pots in it but it has never really worked, so was really chuffed when I came up with this idea 😊 @sieveheadsarah

You've done it proud, the hessian does a fab job of showing up the metal work!! 😍👍🏼😍

Looks Great Jacqueline @awomanonabike you’ve given me an idea I have an old iron magazine rack I think at the end of the garden might be able to do the same as you have 👍👌😍😘

Thanks Suzie - sounds good. I can’t take credit for the idea of using hessian but I can’t remember who or where I got the idea from 🤔🙄 @jadojado29

8 Jun 2018 • I’m not sure which of you lovely people gave me the idea for this but this is Tumbling Tom in a hessian lined metal basket. This one is going to spend the summer outside 🤔 and the others are going to stay tucked up in the greenhouse 🍅

I did this one last year, to say it fruited prolifically would be an understatement Jacqueline 🍅🍅

I think I might have to give some away by the sound of it, not that I don’t like tomato soup 🤔😂 @pelly

I’ve never been very good with tomatoes Gilbert, as I’ve never had the time and organisation to make sure they are watered regularly but hopefully this year will be different 🤔 @twin-dragons
