    How is your soil in Iceland? Is it rich with minerals?
    Are you closer to Vik and Grindvik or more towards Husavik or Dalvik?
    We used Territorial Seeds. They were costly, but worth it.
    Here is another thread on toms from this year:

    Hi COtoAK I live on the west side of Iceland wich will mean closer to Dalvik, the soil is rich in organic matter but a bit acid.

    Default maters like acid soil

    i put epsom salts on my maters to give them acid,if you can grown blueberries then maters will grow real good
    just put a little lime in with the mater plants, this will stop the blossom end rot and keep them from cracking
