      "1 tomato collection (6 plug plants)"

      "Despatch: by end of May 2018"

      tandm plugs.JPG

      If T&M's plug diagram is to scale and at it's maximum size (90mm overall), then the cells of those plugs are approx 36mm deep and the plants are only 54mm/2" high above soil level.

      If their diagram is showing them at the 50mm minimum overall size, the cells would be approx. 20mm high and the plants only 30mm/1.2" high above soil level.


      No wonder packs of them are described as being able to fit through a letter box!

      The end of May sounds rather late for plug plants, and I want my cordon toms to be 225mm/9" to 300mm/12" high by then for planting out.

        I get what your saying . I Havent bought from t&m for years and as my toms are up and running i wont be buying either.

        But having said that i still think 6 varieties delivered for 3 quid to a new gardener seems a good deal to me. 50p a plant onto the windowsill and youll get your toms by end july. Great for a new grower who cant be bothered/hasnt got time/or cant face the buying of 6 different packets of seeds,sowing etc
