A bad year for growing Tomatoes in the uk this year due to climatic conditions.
I have been growing Tomatoes since 1994 when I first started to research the best way to grow them and found the tastiest variety to be "Gardener's delight". I grow them by the Hydroponic method in a greenhouse, and would myself never consider any other method. Yield is far and away above conventional methods and, blight has never been a problem, but it is essential to keep ventilation going through the autumn. Attached find my final harvest picture in mid November 2012. another bonus with Hydroponics is that the pile of green tomatoes that we are all left with with at the end of the season will ripen over the next few weeks if layed out on trays, probably due to the nutrient balance in the feed, In the past I have been able to have a few Tomatoes left into January the following year. A retired friend of mine in the mid nineties asked me if my Tomatoes had a chemical taste due to the hydroponic feed? I gave a bag full the next week. His comment later was that they tasted like real Tomatoes used to taste!
