Thanks JayG for your time and effort in this Survey! Very interesting.

Thanks Nige!

Was beginning to wonder if tomatoes had somehow gone into a parallel universe beyond the reach of even the Hubble telescope!

(By the way, are you back to *2plots or still "*onepot"?)
Sow your seeds, plant your plants. What's the difference? A couple of weeks or more when answering possible queries!

One of the best things about being an orang-utan is the fact that you don't lose your good looks as you get older

My thanks too...(must have taken ages of patient compiling).

Come sowing time there'll be a sudden huge rush of interest when those of us who have not bought this years seed suddenly have some speedy decision to make!  ;)

well I'm pleased as well - especially as I have chosen to grow 100's & 1000's, so thank you JayG  :) xx

Thanks for this, I hadnt read this post this morning, but I had done my own bit of research and from what i have grown before, so this year I'm going for:

Alicante (my Grandad bought me my first tomato plant 2 years ago and it was Alicante, he died recently so I thought I'd grow these again, they were lovely the first time round!)
Principe Borgehese - an italian middling between chery and full size tomato from what Ive read.
Couer De Beouf - apprently arguably the best Beef Tomato?!!

I'm also going to be having a look for some seeds similar to some baby plum's they sell in M&S Santorini or something, they are so sweet and lushious!!

Good luck everyone, I hope for a better season this year as I had a lot of splitting last year!!
I'm a vegetable virgin! All advice offered very welcome!!

I've only just found this thread - wish I'd known, as I'd have willingly contributed to the original survey!  Anyway, in case it's still of interest, my own two favourites are Tigerella because they seem to grow/produce well for me, they look pretty and they taste great!  Also Sungold - once you get the hang of telling whether they're ripe or not, they're really sweet and tasty, and also prolific.  We usually grow four or five varieties and tend to grow them in the greenhouse because we need all the space we can get in the veg patch: the smell is wonderful when you walk in there, especially if the sun's shining - it's a bit like going into a sweet shop, and difficult not to eat as many as you pick!  :D
