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

Tomato Plant (No Side Shoots)?

Posted: 09/06/2015 at 18:04


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?

Corriander (Wilting) ?

  The mold hasn't increased and the leaves seem a bit perkier so it seems the cinnamon has helped....

Can anyone tell me why, my coriander has started to wilt?

Sowed 10/15 days ago and kept on a window sill, watered as required and, is in full light.

Also, I have other pots on the window sill and, I notice that the compost has a film of white mold on the surface... why is this?

I had this problem 3 yrs on the trot.One day the leaves were big and healthy the next the bush was stripped clean!.

It had been in the same place for years though from the previous allotment owner.

I decided to dig it up and move to a new site for this year. Fingers crossed, it's doing very well in it's new home.

We shall see.....



Planting out tomatoes

Posted: 17/05/2015 at 18:52

There are two types of tomato being Urbikany & Latah, (bush type), that I planted outdoors last year on  27th April. They are supposed to be for cooler climates and, me being in Lancashire I decided to give them a try.

They both crop early and went on yielding well into Oct
