It doesnt need to be netted either. Its wind pollinated, so let the breezes get at it.

Yellow leafs

The bottom leaves yellow as the plant ages.cut them off to allow fruit to ripen. Keep feeding with a tomato fertiliser. If all the leaves yellow, give a teaspoon of epsom salts per plant and water in well.

Out during the day usually means a mother looking for food for cubs.  I started feeding mine(tin of dog food or bakers meaty chunks) at that point. We had cubs playing in the garden for quite a few years. My neighbours kids loved them.Some people dont and get upset by them. We thought they were very special, I had one cub that would take food from my hand.

Phormium advice please

It will form black seed pods. They are quite attractive, and I tend to leave them on over winter and then cut the flowered spike to the ground in Spring. If you dont like it you can cut it to the ground after flowering.

Rain just stopped play. I cleared an area for replanting, tipped four bags of home made compost on, then it tipped it down. Coffee break now, then planting.

Visit to Bressingham Gardens

I've found the new Bressingham nursery. Plants only sold online. Presumably there is a clause saying the gardens bit can't sell plants within a certain radius of the garden centre from when they sold it. It is now run by Alan Blooms grandson.

It must be very relaxing to sit in the tree house in the evening., overlooking foggy bottom, with a nice relaxing glass of something.

Did you buy anything in the garden centre yesterday, you lot. I was underwhelmed after the gardens. I can't help thinking they would do a lot better if they went round the gardens, made a list and set up a special area.... as seen in the Bressingham gardens. I wonder if they could do with a marketing consultant.
