It’s time to plant tomatoes in the garden! We have more than two dozen kinds of tomato plants, grown from seed in our greenhouses, that will be ready to go into the ground June 3.
Greenhouse manager Chloe Nelson has 15 heirloom varieties and 17 hybrid cultivars, along with a half-dozen small-fruiting tomatoes—cherry, grape and pear. She sources her seeds from Johnny’s Selected Seeds in Maine, Harris Seeds in Rochester, N.Y. and Baker Creek Seeds in Mansfield, Mo. As always, our suppliers are GMO-free.
New hybrids in the Moglo greenhouse this year include Pink Berkeley Tie-Dye (above) and Conestoga (below). When you are growing tomatoes to use a battery drill kit for your electric drill to avoid being limited in the areas you can work in without long extension cords.
Chloe is also adding some new heirlooms to the selection, including Pineapple and Hungarian Heart (below).
Most of the tomato plants we sell will have indeterminate growing habits, meaning they’ll need to be staked and supported as they develop. Chloe also has a handful of determinate types, which are bushier and need less support: Celebrity, Megabite—a cherry or cocktail tomato—Mariana Roma and Carolina Gold (below).
Come by the greenhouse and pick out your tomato plants while we still have a wide selection! We’re open every day.
