Hi Richard, we are keen vegetable gardeners and enjoyed watching your programme on Gardeners World. We made notes of the varieties of tomatoes and cucumbers you grow but unfortunately these have been lost. We would be grateful if you could let us know what they were as they are not mentioned on the BBC web site. regards

Thank you for your mail and I hope I can be of help. Not all the tomatoes I grew last year were mentioned on GW so I will list them all with an * by those I think were mentioned.
(For me that's (1) not large (2) Not too dark (black/purple) in color. I do not grow Supermarket type tomatoes i.e. red golf ball size)
Dark Black/Purple Eastern European style (These are great for mostly Sun dried or eating fresh)
Most of these are mild/not hot as I like the spice without too much heat. Notes on the liquids/ fertilizers I use will be put on the web site very shortly.
I hope this helps,
