Top Toms for 2012!

  

Latest news from our Open Days

Although the ‘grow-your- own’ boom appears to be marginally slowing down, certain classes of fruit and vegetable continue to gain momentum as the interest for patio vegetables, in particular Tomatoes, Peppers and Strawberries, grows.

At this year’s Ball Colegrave Summer Open Days, visitors were given the opportunity to taste from over 47 tomato varieties offered in the company’s extensive plug and seed range.

Over the 3 weeks 530 visitors judged the fruits to come up with their favourite. Please see below for the table of results:
