Problem with my magnolia

Posted: 29/04/2017 at 16:07

Just to say, use rainwater or distilled water for the soil test ... using tapwater which may be high in lime content would rather defeat the object ... but the instructions rarely tell you that

Whats happening with my tomato plants

That's very naughty of them!    Tomatoes need overnight temperatures of around 14C before they should be planted outside.  


If you look here http://www.gardenersworld.com/how-to/grow-plants/tomatoes-grow-guide/ you'll see that it recommends planting out 'after the last frost in May' ........... whenever that May be    - I don't have the gift of foresight  .... early June is a safer bet.

I think they've been affected by the chilly weather ... brrrrr!   I'm sure they'll recover. 


I think I'd put them in bigger containers tho.

Think they're suffering from the chill.  Mine will stay indoors until June, and I'm a lot further south than you are. 


Don't worry, we all do it to start with .......... we live and we learn
