      Hi David,
      I suggest sowing a few seeds at the beginning of March and a few at the end of March. That way you’ll be covered if anything goes wrong with the first batch and the harvest will be spread out over a longer period.
      Regards,
      Nick

      Hi Terry,
      It seems that most online stockists of the product are sold out. You might try a large garden centre but you won’t need to use it until the first flowers set fruit – gives you plenty of time!

    Hi,
    I was thinking of trying to grow Black Krim toms this year.However I read that Black Krim leaves are poisonous……is it advisable to grow them as I have a cat which gets his nose and paws into everything.Just how poisonous are the leaves?
    regards

      Hi Douglas,
      All varieties of tomato leaves are poisonous – as far as I know.
      How much your cat would need to eat before it did some damage I don’t know, but I’ve never heard of any animal being affected by eating leaves of tomato plants.
      Regards,
      Nick

      PS Perhaps I should mention it in the newsletter that a tomato leaf salad is dangerous for your health!!!
