There are total 7-9 plants of Coreopsis ...i guess you sent me Tomato "Gardener's delight"...

Tomato Ildi under-performed and the trusses are small compared to what i have read over internet...

I remember now, the tomato seeds i sent you were of 'Sweet Million' from Sakata seeds. Ildi will perform if grown as cordon.

I had started giving it vinegar water, may be an acidic medium make it perform better...

Tahir, you sent me three different tomato seeds including maskotka and sweet million which were not planted....

I have grown one plant of Ildi as a cordon, the result is similar, just 7-8 tomatoes per truss... however, it is much much sweeter.... by June i guess, i will be able to send the saved seeds of Ildi to seed bank..
