Hi Jana - am I right in understanding this is the fruit tree Latin name Cydonia which produces large fruit for cooking with and making jelly etc like this one?


and not the ornamental quince Chaenomeles which is a flowering shrub like the one below



Does anyone know when...

OH thank god for that...Feel like I've been waiting a decade for the new season of GW to start. My only wish now is that they would bring it back as an hour long program like it used to be . The snippets are too short in these half hour programs, and it displeases me when Monty says, "and here's some of the jobs you can get on with in the garden this week" as I know the end is nigh!

Hear! Hear!  I heartily agree!  But if it's going to be on for an hour then it needs to start at 8pm - some gardeners need their beauty sleep

When do I repot please?

Hello Luke

Are the top ones tomatoes?  I'd pot them up individually now and make sure they get plenty of light. 

Are the bottom ones the broccoli?  I think they're too etiolated to be any good - they've been too warm and not had enough light.  I'd start again with them.

Good luck
