B3 can comment on normal.

I remember at secondary school we had a week to view homework type diary. Sometime similar would be fine in my opinion but perhaps you want something you can add photos too?

Manure and tomato plants

Posted: 29/05/2017 at 08:29

Well rotted manure is brilliant for growing vegetables (and many other plants too). All you need to do if you're concerned us keep the tomatoes from physically touching the manure and of course rinse well before consuming.

When you say how how large do you mean? Big plants need big roots so I wouldn't want to suggest something inappropriate to your pots.

The not having to tidy up after a plant will be tricky. Everything tends to regenerate as is the way of life.

Have you considered trellis?

Is it my imagination, or are we getting a lot of " I've got this problem, what can I do with it? I've got no money and can't do any of the work " kinda topics?

We  have many skills, but I'm unaware of anyone with a magic wand.

Greenhouse Shading Alternatives

I got a cheap bed sheet and tied it to the roof for shading one year! Rolled up and put in the bin when no longer required!

Oh: and for your rusty slabs. Remember if you can't get it off like any teenager that spilt a drink on the sofa; you can always flip them over!
