Soil Liquefaction?

Posted: 14/08/2014 at 11:35

You have a drainage problem that needs to be investigated and resolved.  

We'll need more details and photographs. 

Update on last year's tomato problems

Posted: 14/08/2014 at 11:33

I think you know the problem - the one consistent fact you've repeated in your post above is that you've not selected a variety developed for flavour.

I've just been reading the local press - lots of excitement about James Desaolu's  fantastic 100m gold medal ant the European Championships last night - his parents live in Norwich  

chillie id?

I don't know that one, but I have some Banana chillies, which are turning a warm yellowish orange - looks like yours are too.  I would think that orange is the ripe colour.  Try one and see 

Cyclamen which way up

Posted: 14/08/2014 at 07:49

Enjoy your cyclamen - when we moved here 3 years ago this week and started to explore the jungle of ivy and russian vine, I was thrilled to find a few little white cyclamen peeping out - over the weeks more and more appeared - I'd always wanted a garden with white cyclamen in it   When the builders dug out the bank to shore it up with sleepers they carefully removed all the huge old cyclamen corms and kept them safe in a dark damp corner and we successfully replanted them.  

As everything's been ahead of time this year, we've got a garden full of little white cyclamen at the moment - absolutely gorgeous

Sorry Fg, I want to hang on to it - can't you push your garden down here?  It's downhill all the way
