Hey all..i planted 3 VF Roma tomato plants in the greenhouse and im wondering are they a slow growing tomato plant? i know they are semi bush variety..so maybe they dont grow that tall..i have them along side yellow perfection and gardeners delight and these plants are flying up the canes already..in a week they've grown 6" or so!

Well done Nozebleed. I planted Gardener's Delight from seed and they are about 3 inches tall at this stage and I was happy enough with this until I read your post that yours had grown 6" in a week. Do you have them in the ground or in pots of compost. Sad

yep...they're planted in the ground..greenhouse is lovely and warm last few days..both yellow perfection and gardeners are growing really quick. i added a hand full of potash when planting..along with plenty of water..they already have 2 truss' developed!!!...the roma variety dont seem to be growing as fast. they have a truss on each plant but the plant is still about 10" tall. i did plant them very deep though..maybe that is not such a good idea. i think i planted them about 4" deeper than the pot mark on the stem. im just impatient!!!

Sounds great. Did you buy young plants or did you grow from seed.
