Hedging ideas

Honeysuckle - different varieties so you can stagger the flowering times

and I would go for hawthorn, environmentally much richer - flowers for pollinating insects, berries for the birds

Good morning all

Shhhhhhhhhh!  The sun's shining   and it's Friday

Tomatoes - some fruit not growing properly

Posted: 30/07/2015 at 19:51

The constant supply of water may be the problem - I find it better to grow tomatoes 'hard' allowing them to begin to wilt between waterings - I get well flavoured tomatoes with few problems (fingers crossed ).

They will start to turn a paler green first, that's the first sign of ripening, then they will start developing colour.

At this time of year leave them to ripen on the plant - later in the season when temperatures drop you can pick them and bring them indoors to ripen - usually it's mid to late September before I do that.

Which Scabiosa are you growing - the annual or perennial?

Folks - there are over 1,000 threads on this forum on this subject  - the majority of them contain much anger and unpleasantness  - it's certainly a subject that arouses strong emotions.  Thre are some things in this world about which we will never agree.
