2012 Tomato Plant List

This is a tentative list.  Depending on seed germination, weather conditions, and other factors, I may or may not have all of these varieties available  If you order a variety and I do not have it available when you pick up your plant, I will try to replace it with a similar variety or other plant at your discretion.

E-mail me at jworley1@hotmail.com with a list of varieties you’d like and the quantity of each.  I’ll set your order aside and take care of your plants until you’re ready to put them in your garden.  Plants will be available for pick-up starting April 21st..  I recommend planting around the first full week of May.  If you plant earlier than this, you’ll have to watch for possible frosts and cover your plants or move them indoors to avoid damage.  Tomato and pepper plants cannot tolerate any frosts!

I will also have Italian and Asian basil plants available as well as some other herbs this year.

I will also have cucumber plants of several types this year.

Plant prices will be $2.50 each, 5 plants for $10, or 12 plants for $20.  Further discounts for very large quantities.

For those of you interested in growing lettuce, I will have lettuce plants available in early March.  I’ll have a one-day sale for these lettuce plants and will send out an e-mail reminder when I know the date of the lettuce plant sale…it will depend on the weather.

So without further ado, here is this year’s list.  Please click on the hyperlinks for each variety to learn more about them.  As always, you can e-mail me with any questions you might have about gardening and I’ll do my best to help!
