Tomato trouble

Posted: 10/07/2014 at 09:01

Unless we're blessed with a summer like 1976, I would say forget growing outdoor tomatoes here in the UK.....too much temperature fluctuation.

Leave it to the Italians.....I'll get me coat!

I think it means by getting rid of waste, don't also discard what is worth keeping, bekkie.

To each his/her their own of course, but perhaps it would be timely to point out that people (like Monty Don) who opt for sowing their sweet pea seed in March, are just about to start cutting their first flowers.......these will of course continue to bloom until the autumn.

On the other hand, those opting for autumn sowings, have been enjoying their flowers for the past two months.....the downside being that these will be past their best by late August / early September.

I've always advocated sowing at both times  for a continuation of flowers.

PS. rosemummy, it's far from a 'faff', it's as difficult as you care to make it.

I do so agree, Dove......this is what I posted a couple of pages back ' took loads to an old people's home today......according to the staff, the smell brings back childhood memories.'

I'm pretty sure this will be the result of poor pollination. Try misting on warm days to increase humidity.

Not a quote as such, but the quote of a poem......from 'Carve her name with pride'.

"The life that I have
Is all that I have
And the life that I have
Is yours

The love that I have
Of the life that I have
Is yours and yours and yours

A sleep I shall have
A rest I shall have
Yet death will be but a pause

For the peace of my years
In the long green grass
Will be yours and yours
and yours
