Tomatoes

I wouldn't be worried about that ... well within the range of normal for my tomato plants.


Don't feed until the first truss of tomatoes has set or you'll have all leaf and few tomatoes.


Don't water unless the compost is beginning to dry out.

It would be funny if it wasn't so tragic.

What have you sprayed against? 


Can you post a photo of the tomatoes please ... whole plants and a closer view of the leaves ... start with the camera icon and follow instructions.  If it doesn't upload try reducing the size of the photo ... that usually works.

I would get some John Innes No. 3 soil based (sometimes called loam based) compost  - you should be able to get it quite easily from a garden centre.

Help yourselves ...... we've had our share 


Re the plant thingy .... I still think the plant that's had the most influence on gardens (whether for good or ill)  in the last however many years is Cupressus Leylandii .......... just imagine how our gardens were before they appeared on the scene ... people chatting over the fence etc .... now we get so many queries from people who think they can't enjoy their garden without screening off and shutting out the rest of the world with a wall of monotone green ....

The mystery of the disappearing hedgehogs

Posted: 11/06/2017 at 10:31

They often 'disappear' for a few weeks in the summer because the females have 'nursery responsibilities' and change their routine.

Best advice from all quarters nowadays is that Harlequin ladybirds are here to stay ... they cannot be eradicated and should be left to get on with eating aphids.  They're certainly doing a fantastic job in my garden.
