Tomato’s haven’t started to ripen yet – Anything I can do?

Posted: 18/09/2013 at 22:21

Yes I noticed one of mine had split around the top - Thought it might have been the cold, but it was probably the rain then.

Many thanks again for the information Italophile. Glad to hear that I will still be able to eat them!

Thanks for the information and help. I have taken the larger tomatos inside. One of the types were Black Russians and never having  had these before I'm not sure if this is how they are meant to look. On the bottom they seem to have splits and/or have holes in them. First though was insects eating into them but then due to the brownish band and the 'holes' being connected to them is this just natural?

Photo attached.

Hi, Starting from the point I don’t know what I’m doing!!! I have had a go at growing tomato’s this year. Anyway the plants seemed to grow very well although I would say that not as many tomato’s as I would have thought for their size, but the key issue that is concerning me at the moment is none have turned red yet!

 

Some are looking a good size but I am wondering how long they can be left outside for as the temperatures are now starting to drop? I’ve got three tomato plants of different varieties in one grow bag.

 

I still have some flowers on them and there are also some very small tomato’s starting to develop.

 

Really any advice on growing tomato’s will be of help.

 

If I cut the larger tomato’s from the plant will they ripen indoors and where would be best to leave them?

 

Many thanks

 

Guy

Cheers Dovefromabove - will leave it for now. Will need to do some pruning so will look at it then!

Although indicated it's not doing any real damage to the rose would it be advisable to remove at some point or just monitor the situation. The Wiki pages indicates various stages of the life cycle.

Thanks

Hi,

Had been away for a few days and when we got back my wife noticed this on one of our roses. Can anyone tell us what this is? As the attached photo shows the 'plant' looks like a small ‘furry’ ball about 2 inch in diameter. Neither of us have much experience in gardening and never seen anything like this before. Not sure if it is some sort of parasite?

Many thanks,

Guy
