HELLO FORKERS!

Posted: 18/07/2014 at 18:27

Hello folks, Dove's been watering (with a lot of help from the under gardener )  30+ pots of tomatoes, plus cukes also in pots, and the raised beds needed a good soaking, as did the front border - the poor fig tree was thirsty and it's leaves started to go yellow  - not surprised 34C in the front garden 

Sorry some people have had carp days - but TGIF   Have a little alcofrolic something or other with me   and help Panda celebrate - HER HOLIBOBS START HERE!!!

I'd give the clematis a good drink too - and maybe a dose of liquid fertiliser too - they're very hungry plants.

Hi Jack23 

It sounds as if these trees are suffering from lack of water.  Trees and shrubs need a lot of water in their first few years, and sometimes throughout their lives, depending on conditions.  

In the summer I would give a newly planted tree (ie a tree in it's first couple of years) at least a full bucket of water at least three times a week every week, even if it's rained recently.

Replacement Cover Sought

Just an outside chance - Tesco online sell a hexagonal growhouse - it might be worth checking the measurements and if they're compatible you might be able to purchase a cover from them http://www.tesco.com/direct/tesco-hexagonal-growhouse-with-metal-frame-plastic-cover/213-4557.prd

That's just what they do when the flowers are fading, particularly if they're rained on.

Where did she buy it?  Is it a named variety?

That means they're ripening - then they'll begin to split open - that's when the seeds are ripe and ready to be sown so you can have more ..........
