Grafted Vegetable Plants

Grafted plants are strong and vigorous, so we recommend feeding your plants from when the first flower buds appear. Use a fertiliser which contains high levels of potash and feed once a week to start with, increasing to twice a week when the plant is cropping well. Most grafted plants will need some support as they grow, especially tomatoes and aubergines. Ensure the support used is strong enough to bare the weight of the plant.

Please note – do not remove the plastic grafting clip. It will fall off naturally as the plant grows. If growing in containers the minimum size pot that is suitable is a 12ltr and if using a grow bag, plant a maximum of two plants per bag. The grafted union must be kept above the soil level to ensure suckers and adventitious roots do not develop.
