Tomatoes - possibly my second mistake of the year!!!!

Posted: 09/05/2014 at 11:28

Far be it for me to complicate things anymore than they need to be, but a classic mistake made by even experienced gardeners is to remove the growing tip by mistake...it is an upright side-shoot, growing in a different place of course.

So until you get the hang of it proper, just remove side-shoots from between lower leaf joints.

OL, that's a cracking little tommy plant, btw.

I need hugs too....

Oohh, David Moyes.....I wonder if he likes living beside the Seaside 

 

Maldives maybe!  I always liked Ian Holloway meself, though I think you would do well to get Jackie McNamara.

I think they be fine for now in the 9 inch pot. I got some in 4 inch pots about 12 inch tall, they will be planted in the ground probably this weekend.

I am not sure but i be tempted to pinch out the flowers, so the plant gets bigger. I am not sure though, i not all knowledgeable on veg ( well fruit in this case ) but its still  veg to me 

Whoops......no! Don't remove any flowers and re-pot when the first fruit has set

I think this may be due to water lying around the base of the plant in the early stages.

The stems which are delicate and vulnerable to cold (especially during the night) should be planted on a mound of soil to avoid water accumulating around the plant.

It could be worse David,try supporting Everton 

Nothing wrong with The Toffees, Fishy. I greatly admire their present manager and what happened to David Moyes (who did a fantastic job there) was a tragedy...I hope he finds a club worthy of his talents,

PS, Perhaps Fellaini will return when Man U sort themselves out.

They should be fine...will just flower a little later, that's not so bad as they'll probably keep flowering well into the autumn.
