Y Ddraig Goch F1 (Red Dragon)

This cordon variety tomato from Dobies has made history by becoming the first to be officially registered with a Welsh name. I have a pack of seeds and I'm going to grow in the plot 1 greenhouse using the Quadgrow in 2022
A superb British bred variety with an exquisite flavour and outstanding rich red tomatoes with a large calyx. Introduced at Chelsea Flower Show 2019, this new variety has been created by crossing two other favourites with both gardeners and cooks - Goldstar and Cedrico. 
Sow February - April for greenhouse growing in a propagator on a windowsill or pots or trays in a greenhouse at 18-21C (65-70F) using a quality compost.  Cover seeds with 6mm (1/4") sieved compost.
Germination 7 - 14 days. 
Plant May - June Transplanting seedlings singly into 75mm (3" pots. Grow on, finally planting into large pots, grow bags  or direct into the greenhouse boarder 450mm (18") apart when frost risk has passed. 
Feed regularly and side shoot as necessary.
Harvest July - October.
