Tomato Talks & Tips

Free Facebook Live Events
Saturday 18 February

This event has now ended - watch the recorded videos below.

Diggers is the home of heirloom tomatoes, and our varieties top the taste and yield tests, from bite sized cherries for salads to our 'Granny Throwing' tomato we can appeal to everybody's taste and purpose! 

Our tomatoes are indeterminate, which means the vine continues to flower and yield fruit over a 12-week period to give you the greatest return on investment. 

Co-founder of the Diggers Club & Foundation, Clive Blazey AM and CEO, Tim Sansom discussed how something as simple as growing a tomato is important to our environment and the best approach to organic growing.
