Thanks ...that's great !


im picking my pink brandywine at the moment.....good but not the best for flavour . 


That was definitely Soldaki which I will grow again for sure.....amazing taste but late fruiting and sparse fruiting....great if you have lots of space.

Over large black currant bushes

i know not to prune my black currant bushes till winter but can I cut them back by 30-50% now as they are flopping around all over the place or should I tie them in and wait till January ?

Wisteria graft failure

Posted: 17/08/2016 at 08:50

My 6 year old wisteria has suffered graft failure. New shoots are appearing from below the graft . Can I train these in  ? They are vigorous and look healthy . Will the plant be substantially different ?

Lychnis and lavender plantlets

My greenhouse has soil beds where I grow tomatoes, cucumbers etc so they burrow down from outside , pop up , have quick feed and push off when full. During the winter months I'm the equivalent of McDonalds !

Hmm.....my only problem there is the mice who tend to enjoy anything overwintering in  the greenhouse. 

I hate having to use traps but after losing all my sweet peas and broad beans last winter I did resort to them in the end....that and wire cages round all the plants . A lot of work.

Thanks for that.My gut feeling was to do a mixture of all the options ....just in case !

you have given me the confidence to stop faffing around and get on with it !

Lychnis and lavender plantlets

I took seeds from my magenta coloured lychnis this summer and now have lots of healthy plants 3 inches tall....also lavender cuttings which have taken well.They have been in my glass roofed shed . Can I plant them out now , put them in the unheated greenhouse or leave them where they are till Spring ? I am in Southern England.
