David - are you just being mischievous 'cos you can't get out into the garden, or have you forgotten to get your hearing aid adjusted?

That worries me - the fact that it's possible to buy things by accident

And not all high street clothing is made in terrible workshops - if you're a responsible person you have to do your research and if a retailer doesn't adhere to reasonable standards you have to hold them to account

I've bumped your earlier thread up for you

Oh certainly I agree  Chris, don't let them dry out ... I just watch out for the leaves to just begin to get soft and then the pots get a good soaking. 

Out of 20+ pots of outdoor toms last year I had two fruits with BER early on ... and I'm still using frozen tomato sauce for pasta etc from last year's harvest
