I had lost all my prized tomato plants from torrential rains and early blight. I sought Jerry’s help in getting my plants replaced. He sent me replacement plants immediately and they arrived quickly and in great condition! Only very slight wilt, that cleared up with watering, per Jerry’s instructions. I’ve ordered a lot of plants over the years, from many different places but, none have looked better than these! Jerry’s help didn’t stop there. He advised me on how to organically control the blight with the few remaining plants I had and how to protect the new ones from it, as well. His numerous years of experience and vast knowledge of Tomatoes saved my summer! All my plants are doing great and look fantastic!
Get ’em from the Geek! Jerry–the Tomato Geek–provided my garden with the heirloom selection I needed to win a ribbon in the fair for canned salsa last year. The selection his greenhouse offers is wider than the Mississippi River and if folks from down there took the drive to Schoolcraft for these tomatoes–boy oh boy would they be in for a treat. Bring a van, bring a friend and make a day of it. See you soon, Jerry!
I had the pleasure of visiting and meeting Jerry and shopping in the Tomato Geeks greenhouse yesterday. What an amazing selection of awesome heirloom tomato plants! Jerry is incredibly knowledgeable in all aspects of tomato growing and a delight to talk with. Well worth the 1 1/2 hour trip each way. If you don’t find what your looking for on the website just ask Jerry and you will get a fast and honest answer for anything your looking for. Truly an amazing resource for all things tomato related. I am GEEKED!
Absolutely amazing experience visiting, Jerry’ s green house personally. So much knowledge in one man! We drove 14.5 hours round trip to pick up our tomato selection. In the process we ended up leaving with more than we initially ordered! Well worth the trip. We’re headed back in, June! He takes a lot of pride in what he does. Won’t buy tomatoes from anyone else. Even if it requires a yearly 14.5 hour drive. Would order again from, Tomato Geeks in a heartbeat!
