Wolf peach tomato

Then I'd sow tomato seeds indoor on a windowsill late February in a small covered propagator, potting on as necessary and putting into the greenhouse when temperatures in the greenhouse can be relied not to drop much below 18C,

You can sow Broadbean Aquadulce Claudia now in the open ground - they will overwinter without protection and you'll be harvesting delicious broad beans in May and June

Hello Petal - that sounds a beautiful drive to work - part of mine is beautiful too - there are particular alder trees that I look forward to seeing, particularly in the spring as their buds are opening and in the autumn as their colours change - when I'm retired I think I'm going to have to make special trips to see them

I tried growing a canna for the first time this year - a deep black-red one as a centre-piece for a tub on our west-facing front porch - it wasn't at all happy and didn't do well.

Do you have a greenhouse?

Sorry - I got it the wrong way round  - Farmergeddun is right - raspberries prefer slightly acidic soil, but not as acidic as some fruits.

I was thinking maybe time-lapse photography showing whether or not the cauli changes colour over the winter - or maybe that's asking a bit much
