Blackcurrant heaven in the fidget kitchen

My first rustic dwarf (grown from seed - never tried them before) has flowered  Sooooo proud 


 

Should i top my tomato plants?

Depends on the variety, but most people say top them out after 5 or 6 trusses, to let them concentrate on the fruit that is there.  Having said that, i never count trusses, but top them once they hit the GH roof

Grasses v popular, but missed this thread last night

Great pics - stipa gigantica with its oat flowers is still my favourite though - sort of floaty  Like it with verbena bonsariensis too.  Ours has yet to flower this year though.

Same story here - very wet - although didn't hear any thunder last night.  Today is a day for chores, and will spend tomorrow in the garden.  As others have said, can't be too downhearted as the soil needed a really good soak.  

Hope sun will be shining on the vicarage by this afternoon - and the place will look and smell  lovely and fresh for its VIP visitors.  Enjoy your train ride Panda

Bekkie - probably Joy Larkcom - has written lots of books on veg gardening.

Sitting here waiting for the thunderstorms

Good luck Woody - and remember to enjoy it.  And all the East Ruston visitors - have a fantastic day - wish I could join you
