Talkback: Time-saving tips for growing tomatoes

Posted: 29/04/2016 at 18:25
Thank you Natalie - it's interesting that you too have had poor germination with these. GE sent me a second pack of seeds and the germination with the second ones, in exactly the same conditions in a heated windowsill propagator, is markedly improved.
More seeds would be welcome, although I will probably grow them next year ad I have already bought and sown more seeds to replace the first failed batch of Supersweet.

Can you identify these plants?

Rhus typhina for me. I can see fuzz on the stems.

Good morning all   G'day Pat

Glorious sunny day here in Norfolk but I know others not that far north from here have woken up to snow! 

Niece's birthday today - OH is off to the farm shop to put in a couple of hours setting up etc, then he'll be back and we'll go to the GC to collect a pair of lucky gerbils and their designer home.   Not sure what else birthday girl wants to do, but I do know that supper will be a Chinese takeaway

My fairly rubbish day got better when the oil arrived, then worse when a whole crown fell off my tooth. ....

 

Have you been crunching on Werther's Originals Hosta?

You explain it so well Pansyface - my reply was going to be more succinct and less interesting, but essentially reaching the same conclusion.

ID please

All I can see is herb Robert and a willowherb.

I agree Dave ... and possibly some pulmonaria flower buds top left.
