Hi All,

Can used tea bags be used for compost/mulch on tomato plants. Reason I ask is I have moved to Northern Spain for a while and I have taken over a plot (all containers, pics to follow), and, I am looking at ways to retain as much moisture as possible and enrich the soil at the same time.  

Help Appreciated

No, the seeds haven't been mixed up.

I had the same problem when I tried to grow a Urbikany bush type indoors, (no side shoots).

The urbikany's outdoors have good side shoots and are growing well.

Is it possible I have a mix of good and bad seed?

These were sown  1 month ago and are grown indoors. Should they not have by now some side shoots?

It gets the sun all day

What Toms and cucs are you growing?

Posted: 09/06/2015 at 18:49

Toms: Latah & Urbikany

Cucs: Marketmore & Cucamelons


Read that cucamelons are easier to grow than the standard cucs so, I am giving them a go. Size of a grape and tastes of melon/cuc with a hint of lime.mmmmm

This is a bush type called 'Urbikany'. I grew them last year as they are for cooler climates and as I'm in the North West of England I gave them a try. Very early fruiter. This year though the plant doesn't have any side shoots at all and, I was wondering why?
