Thanks everyone. Each year I grow a couple of either Alicante or Shirley, as a back up for others, as they seem to perform regardless of weather and even if not the most tasty, any are better than SM ones  Usually have 13 plants and a few outdoor ones.

This year I'll be down to one GH, so cumbers have to join the toms. I will grow more outdoor bush cherry ones in buckets. These have been lovely last 2 yrs. Inside GH will be Roma for cooking & some St. Pierre & another variety, not decided which yet

Pdoc, think my meconopsis is dead, no new growth.  Might have root around in the pot.

Dove, I'll have your sun if you don't need it. Dull and chilly here.

Getting ready to go to Wilko, few things needed.

Good Morning, happy St.Patricks day

I spent most of yesterday in the garden, when I got going. OH reduced Pyracantha, escallonia and last of buddleja. As a result he got a very nice roast pork meal.

I potted on in GH and sewed ( makes me laugh as not exactly a hard job) my peas, beetroot, cosmos, and some perennial poppies. Did a bit of hoeing and watered some of my pots. It's getting cramped in the GH.

BFN, going for a look around the forum.

Thank you Lizzie Have you eaten them? I'm wondering if they taste any better than Alicante or Shirley which I've grown as an "ordianry" reliable tomato.

Has anyone grown S.Pierre toms?  I have been given a packet of seeds. I understand they tolerate cooler conditions, make a good sized tomato & are tasty.
