Lower leaves on tomatoes going yellow

Posted: 23/06/2014 at 10:34

Hi Sue

I'm glad you listed the names of your tomato plants as I have now learned that there is a tomato called Galina, which is from Siberia. Where did you get your seeds for it from? I have a friend at work who is a keen gardener, she is called Galina and is from Russia so I'd love to grow it for her next year.

Very leggy Philadelphus

I had one just like that, I dug it out. There is supposed to be a dwarf mock orange, I don't know its name. There are lots of Philadelphus flowering at the moment, they are all huge shrubs!

Norwegian Flax flowering for the first time

They aren't really grown for their flowers as they aren't much to look at, more for the foliage.

I always thought the plants had to be a decent size to flower but as the ones at work which aren't very big are flowering, I think it is as Edd says the winter has affected them. I never fed mine and as you've had yours for 10 years I wouldn't do anything different.

I don't know much about Percy Thrower but I would hope he wouldn't use a double negative in a sentence!

Rudbeckia and Echinacea

I'm not sure you can, the leaves are similar, the flower stems on rudbeckia tend to be taller

If you find a male flower shove it into the female flower to aid pollination, are you getting many insects inside your polytunnel?
