Tomatoes on allotment?

Posted: 12/06/2014 at 20:22

Fruitcake, I can't see where you are in the U.K. Here in the Norfolk Fens I grow some toms outside and some inside, and then hope for a sunny warm summer.

Sadly there is no bird sitting on the eggs; don't know enough about this to figure out if nest is abandoned.

What have you learnt this year in the garden?

Good luck Mike Hope all goes well for you.

I taught myself how to do green/soft cuttings for the flooded gardens appeal; then went to youtube and watched some videos on it and blow me down, I was doing it right! My next challenge will be to take some hardwood cuttings, which will take much longer to develop. I also want to have a go at 'Tufa' - fake stone containers when I have the time.

But mostly I have learnt how incredibly generous the forum members have been, sowing and growing plants for Somerset gardens and looking out for members who have been unwell

Did I review 1500 plants in my sleep?
