Tomato Varieties

Posted: 10/02/2014 at 16:39

Moneymaker is an easy to grow, normal size tomato around 100g each. Marmande is a beef steak variety, up to 400g each, but a lot less on the vine. I have not come aross harzfeur before. Have you got a greenhouse or are they going outside?

A parcel has just arrived. 10 plugs of Hellebore washfield doubles. I bought using Tesco vouchers tripled up. They wont flower this year, or next probably, but still I've got plenty of others to be going on with.

Now I really must stop buying hellebores. I forgot about these coming.

The roots will all come from a central point. This point needs to be at soil level, with the bunch of roots splayed out beneath it, and then cover with soil.  Water in well.

Huge garden hedge

I'd start again, and put something more controllable in like a beech hedge, or variegated hollies. They can be kept to the height you want without much difficulty.

My mum made the same observation as OH did in the cafe at Ashwood.

" This place is full of people, mainly women, of a certain age"

. Whilst a few people garden all their lives, a lot don't develop an interest until they get their own house and garden, or until they retire.

Theres a lot of nutters out there, Panda.  Not including us of course.

I was talking to my mum, about picking panda up at the train station, and trusting complete strangers.  Thats why we are meeting in a public place. CCTV and all that. While we take a lot of statements at face value,we could be talking to a psychopath with gardening tendencies and a big shovel. We could be talking to someone living in a fantasy world(not counting verduns cabin and the cake).

But sometimes you just have to trust your gut instinct.
