If your earlier plantings of dearly loved tomatoes are starting to show the fruits of your labour, now is the time to get cracking with a fertiliser enriched with potassium sulphate to ensure plentiful crops.Crops such as sweetcorn and tomatoes are likely to be looking top heavy, so make sure you have adequate support for your plants.
