Young tomato plants falling over ?

They'll get tall and the trusses of tomatoes will (hopefully) be heavy, so get some good tomato canes and tie them in with soft twine or raffia.


Or you can buy special tomato supports at the garden centre.

If you want it to have blue flowers next year use ericaceous loam-based compost when you repot, and water either with rainwater or use tap water Hydrangea Blueing Powder (from garden centres), otherwise the flowers will turn pink.

May Day celebrations go back to traditional spring celebrations with dancing around the Maypole etc Pat, and then with the rise of the socialist movement and trades unions  it was the day chosen to celebrate that too, so you can take you pick and celebrate one or both 


Right you greedy lot ......... I've made two lemon meringue pies so there's plenty for all of you, and it's a big 5lb chicken so the more the merrier.  If son and at least some of you don't turn up we'll be eating chicken all week!  


Sitting down at 6pm so you'll have time to do some gardening too .......... volunteers to mow my grass get pigs in blankets too

Take a look at the photos here  http://www.gardenersworld.com/forum/problem-solving/hydrangea-disease/996218.html 


as I said, damage caused by frost/low temperatures caused by the chilly wind from the arctic region we had last week ....... the wind brings the cold air ... even to sheltered spots.  


They will recover.
