My choice of tomatoes all grown in a unheated greenhouse are, Alicante, Moneymaker, Ailsa Craig, Gdnrs Delight, and Bejbino (DT Brown). Bejbino is similar to Gdnrs Delight. My tip to prevent mildew is to ventilate well even leaving the greenhouse doors open 24 hrs a day when conditions allow,my other tip is to keep seedlings on the dry side

I have found Piccolo to have the best flavour, markedly better the Gardener's Delight. Seed is very hard to find, however.

I am growing melon tomatoes for the first time, do I take out side shoots as per ordinary tomatoes?

I have seen, somewhere, that you can train tomato plants up and along the greenhouse roof. I have fixed staging in my greenhouse so need to do this to accommodate the plant. However I am not sure how to get that first bend from straight upright to curving up the roof without breaking the stem. Please could anyone suggest how to do this. Thank you
