This superb outdoor cordon variety is perfect for growing in unpredictable British summers. The trusses of Tomato 'Orkado' are early to ripen, bearing an average of 8 round, deep red fruits per truss. The firm, well-flavoured, medium sized fruits, each weighing up to 140g (5oz), resist splitting and are ideal for slicing. Height: 200cm (79"). Spread: 50cm (20").
Companion planting; Try growing tomatoes with French marigolds to deter whitefly, and basil, chives or mint to deter aphids and other pests.

For outdoor cultivation: Sow from March to April.
Sow seeds on the surface of a good, free-draining, damp, seed sowing mix and cover with a fine sprinkling of compost or vermiculite. Place seed trays in a propagator at a constant temperature of around 15-20C (59-68F) until after germination, which takes 7-14 days. When seedlings gain 2 true leaves, transplant into individual 7.5cm (3") pots of compost and grow on at a minimum temperature of 15C (59F).
When growing tomatoes outdoors, wait until all risk of frost has passed before transplanting tomatoes. Gradually acclimatise them to outdoor conditions over 7 - 10 days before planting out from early June when tomato plants are 20cm (8") tall. Choose a sheltered position in full sun on fertile, reliably moist, well drained soil, and transplant at a distance of 60cm (24") apart. Drive a (5') cane into the soil adjacent to each plant to support them as they grow, and tie each main stem to its support with soft garden twine.
