Blossom drop is usually caused by changes of temperature, too hot or too cold. Do you shut the GH at night and ventilate it in the day. Other reasons are too much or too little watering and too much fertiliser. Also it can be lack of pollination. Tomatoes prefer a good soak every few days to little and often which can just wet the surface and not get down to the roots. Don't fertilise until bottom trusses have set.
Morning all. More gardening for me today.
Poor OH took 7 1/2 hours to get from Stansted to Eastbourne. M11 closed, then M25 only had one lane. Should take 2 hours. I hope no one was killed in the crash though.
Some varieties of runner beans are leafier than others, big leaves are quite normal.
In France they have cornflowers instead of poppies to remember the war.
I wonder if OH is still stuck on the M11?
Are they really cranberries in a sort of frame? What happens when they rot?
My dahlias are starting to come out so I expect they will be the stars for the next few weeks.
What will you do when you've left the saltmines, Lily? Will you look for something else?
OH is now stuck on the M11 which is closed because of an accident.
Do you sing KEF?
I didn't net my blueberry before going on holiday, the housesitter said the berries were stripped by birds in one day. But they do fruit better if you have more than one variety.
