Hi Alan. The is a shortage where I live in Cheltenham, the council are desperately trying to find land that locals can agree on (one near me didnt happen due to opposition from the residents near by) I am on the waiting list and it could be up to 5 years before I get one nearby.

I really struggled sowing Antirrinums, I grew them from seed and they have been in my

green house most of the summer. They were very small and weedy and seemed to take forever to get  going...any tips

I love GW now, Monty has made it so much  more "arty" and Carols so OTT. All important to us arty types who use their garden to express themselves, though I do propogate all my own stuff so find  Beechwoods great for practical tips, etc.  Love your garden always makes me weep (in a feelgood way).  Anyone know what this  new allotment programe is called?

I have a row of different types of Hosta all in pots under some dense Yew, so its very dark. They love it and are currently all in flower.

Tomato plants in greenhouse

Posted: 30/07/2013 at 14:58

Ate my first ripe one today Yayy!! still waiting for the rest to ripen.

I take off the bottom leaves up to the lowest truss of fruit, seems to work and I like the idea that their is air circulation.

I bought mine secondhand for £50 from Freeads. It cost more though to replace the glass panes! Make sure you have a really level base befor you put any greenhouse up.

good luck

Talkback: How to grow tomatoes in a growing bag

Posted: 29/07/2013 at 16:06

 Hi Marie, they should start soon, I planted my seeds about March so they are a month ahead and full of fruit. Got one red one..yippee (just praying we dont get blight).

Re grow bags, I grew peppers in them last year (first time I have used a grow bag) and also grew some in pots. Pots every time for me, the growbag plants were very stunted but the potted ones were fine!
