More than eighty years ago, Oliver Scott started growing perennials and vegetables in Lincoln upon his arrival from Scotland. In 1935, with his wife Martha, they constructed their first greenhouse and increased the variety of products they grew. The business has expanded to over 5 acres of greenhouses for growing bedding plants, potted plants, seasonal crops, spring bulbs, perennials, hanging baskets, etc. We also carry an extensive inventory of evergreens, flowering shrubs, shade and fruit trees, fertilizers, bulk soils, and much much more!

Why are most of my cherry tomatoes splitting? I have been watering them every day that it does not rain. A lot of them split last year also.
Cherry tomatoes normally will split when they are over watered. Water wisely, always try to make sure the plants dry a bit between waterings that is what encourages root growth and a healthy root system. If you are watering in pots always make sure water runs out of the bottom of the pot and discard that excess water, never leave the plant sitting in water. If you are planting in the ground be sure that your soil has good drainage and always add nutrition when first planting such as compost, peat moss if needed etc.
