Why not embrace the Grow-Your-Own lifestyle to celebrate British Tomato Week (15 – 22 May)?
Botanico the award winning Grow-Your-Own and eco product supplier, offers a great range of garden accessories that are ideal to help you grow an abundant crop of tomatoes.
Tomatoes are straightforward to grow and produce a multipurpose ingredient for salad soups, pizza and sauces.
They are an excellent source of Vitamins A, C and recent research has shown that the pigment lycopene, which makes most ripe tomatoes red, may be particularly active in protecting the body against heart disease and some forms of cancer.
