Should my raspberry canes be growing?

Posted: 06/05/2016 at 07:00

My Polka are growing away well now, but they have been where they are for a few years now. I would gently scrape some soil away from around the brown stick ones and just see if there's any sign of new shoots underground. 

what is best - indeterminate or deteminate tomatoes?

Posted: 06/05/2016 at 06:51

I think it largely depends on the method you're using to grow them - indeterminate varieties suit growing cordon style in a greenhouse better than  determinate bush types, but they work very well in pots outside. 

Ive never discerned a general difference in the quality of the fruit.

Hi Karrie

I root rose cuttings in a gritty slit trench in the garden - no rooting hormone - just leave them alone for 12 months.

I seem to remember some information gathering, and also some members went to the Intermediate Media offices in London and Bristol to answer questions, look at mock ups etc.

Have you thought about using an obelisk to train it around so that you get the almost horizontal training of the stems which will encourage flowering.
