The fertiliser went in about March time I think...

Tomato Problem

Posted: 15/07/2013 at 18:40

Can I throw my problem in too!? Generally my plants look pretty healthy but in recent days the newer growth has had a pronounced droop to it, lower leaves still very green and tough looking. It's been in the high 20s/early 30s here by day for the last week or so but it still seems unlikely it's lack of water? They're in 25 litre containers and I've been watering around every 3 days. I started feeding as of yesterday and gave the feed with a good soak - but hasn't helped the droop. 

Any thoughts greatly appreciated...

This is a common question, and I probably should know the answer , but when do you start feeding your tomato plants? feed says 'when the first truss has set.' most of my plants have got around three or four trusses but in each case i wouldn't say all of the fruit on the first truss has appeared. a few maybe. should i start or still keep holding off, taking the instructions literally?

i've got the same problem. i'd dug some fertiliser into the soil before the seedlings went in (started from modules), plenty of large green leaves, but i've scratched around and just thin purple roots...

Should you get rid of leaves that grow at the end of a truss? Must admit, had never seen it before but read someone here had it one of their plants and sure enough, one of my Gardeners Delights does...below, truss to the left of the stem in the centre of the pic. 

im pinching out side shoots on mine. Haven't cut off any lower branches as of yet - seems a bit early?

Sweet corn......help

Posted: 05/07/2013 at 13:39

Some of my sweetcorn plants look similar and I'm convinced that squirrels scrabbling around them is the problem. In some cases, they've actually snapped stems, in others it's as if they've pulled at leaves, leaving them looking ragged.

Might not be what's causing this to yours but if you've got squirrels nearby beware... I've tried putting netting and various around but they don't seem deterred.

My beets have rapidly taken a turn for the worse... Leaf miner do you think? Any tips for what to do / how to control?

I dug one up as my 2 year old had rampaged nearby and bent the stem anyway. i'm pretty sure it was from one of the small inner cloves (which i'm never sure whether to bother planting). anyway, the result is a pretty small bulb - but definitely a bulb at least! - about the width of a 2p piece.

i think for the rest i'm going to wait another few weeks, don't think will do too much harm.
