Spots on tomato leafs

Posted: 18/05/2014 at 08:56

It might be tomato leaf spot - septoria - but I can't get a good enough close-up to see properly .

I'd remove the affected leaves - increase ventilation and decrease humidity.  

Overwatering is the cause of many tomato problems - only water when the soil is dry an inch below the surface and water the soil only, not the leaves. 

Beech Hedge

Beech hedges should be clipped in August - doing this means that the new growth will be retained over winter when it has turned that glorious golden brown.  

If the hedge is trimmed before August the regrowth will be too mature to be retained over winter and you'll be left with bare branches. 

Hope that's helpful

Good morning Verdun  - absolutely glorious here too   I've had to wake OH up to prepare him for mowing the lawns once the time of day becomes more civilised!

Then we have to plan to re-jig the garden a bit - we need more raised beds to enlarge the veg patch. 

A breakfast of Spicy mumbled eggs (leftover curry and scrambled eggs) will be taken on the terrace - how many am I cooking for and how may coffees and who takes tea?

Small amount of curry and some very good pilau rice left - first come, first served .........
