Our 86 year old neighbour was rushed into hospital 6 weeks ago with a broken leg. Since then I have been sole carer of 2 growbags of tomatoes in her very ancient greenhouse.
One side is sungold and the other side something I have forgotten... but essentially one grow bag hosts little ones and the other bigger ones.
My problem is they are not changing colour. I am giving them a watering can of water each morning and night at the same time, putting tomato food in the water all the time, opening the door to ventilate between 8am and 6pm as she did (skylight thingy doesn't work). She has bubble wrap round the sides but the roof is not shaded at all. I seem to recall her having tomatoes lined up along her kitchen windowsill ripening... but I am so worried she returns home and her precious tomatoes are not performing satisfactorily.
(The many and varied houseplants are a whole other worry). What else should I be doing please?
