Growing tomatoes with New Horizon Tomato Planter

Our New Horizon Tomato Planter has a naturally peat-free formulation that gives your tomatoes triple the goodness. The planter contains next generation BIO3, a revolutionary peat replacement technology engineered to outperform peat based composts.

Our new and improved bag ensures easier watering and deeper roots, as well as being enriched with tomato feed for the best possible crop of juicy tomatoes. It’s the ideal size for two growing tomato plants and is also ideal for growing chillies, peppers, and cucumbers too!

How to use New Horizon Tomato Planter

  • Roll the bag and shake to open up the compost. Pierce drainage holes in the bottom of the bag.
  • Cut the bag length-ways when in position.
  • Make holes in the compost and place plants. Push canes into place.
  • Water when dry. Feed every three days after the first green fruits appear.
