San Marzano 3 tomatoes

From what I've read semi-determinate means that they are bush-type, but prone to be a bit on the rampant side, so the side-shoots may need shortening or they may need a fair bit of support. 

Hope that helps. 

How to protect autumn-sowing broad beans and peas?

Posted: 06/09/2014 at 15:58

I sow Aquadulce Broad Beans most autumns, but I've not grown autumn-sown peas for years; however today you've made me order some seeds  http://www.realseeds.co.uk/peas.html 

I've ordered the Hatif d'Annonay  - we've not had mouse problems in this garden so far - fingers will be crossed!

Verdun - the galliardias were just labelled Galliardias - they're budding up for another flush of blooms, at the moment they look like this

 Chicky - I'm pretty sure I posted about the Rustic Dwarves a while back - but maybe you were away?  They've been fantastic and they're still blooming they're socks off

 And they've completely won OH around - he thought he didn't like yellow flowers!

Many many thanks (hugs))

Strange here this morning  It's grey and drab....very warm though.  And sun will be out very soon. 

May grab a couple more gaillardias later from a small nursery.  Hmmm!  Gaillardias are "itching" me at the moment.  Very colourful but smack too much of annuals and annuals aren't really my cup of tea ...well, ok in containers.  if I can find a "classy" slightly more subtle variety for the garden but they look a little gaudy .....???

Hace nice weekend folks ........

I'm enjoying galliardias at the moment - I remember them growing in my Gardening Granny's garden when I was very small.  Mexican Blankets she called them. A little gaudiness is good in the autumn - just look at the hedgerows!

Good morning Fidget.  I think you're right.  OH has gone to work  - I've got a load in the washing machine and am just going to have my plum compote and yoghurt for brekkie.  Then the garden had better beware - I'm on a tidying mission this weekend!

Hope your day goes ok
