The Tomato Stall

The Tomato Stall is a specialist tomato grower of organic and conventiional tomatoes based on hte Isle of Wight. Their entire growing system is completely biodegradable, from the coconut husk that their plants are grown in to the string that supports the plants. They compost all of their plant waste and use the resulting compost to enrich the soil of their organic crops the following year. Having their own composting facility also gives them the opportunity to fine-tune the nutrient requirements for specific organic crops. This has helped to reduce fertiliser inputs, improve soil fertility and structure which results in more delicious tomatoes. They use natural predators to control pests, and the pollination of all their plants is done by a team of bumblebees that are native to the UK. Their nursery has Conservation Grade status, meaning that they are ethical, sustainable and fair to nature. They give 10% of their land back to natural habitats including wild flower meadows, barn owl boxes and red squirrel houses
