Poorly tomatoe plant leaves

Posted: 09/06/2013 at 11:36

People need to relax about tomato growing -99% of the time it is nothing to be concerned about -there is too much misinformation there

And the last thing a nurseryman wants is someone carting in a supposed diseased leaf-as has been said it is growing conditions.

Keep calm and carry on

darren, where is Tonbridge and Malling where you live? That would give us some idea of the weather there.

It is in Kent-a search would have told you that

As to the plug plants-would pot them up and grow them on-and plant out later-they are perreniels so don't expect much this year.

Runner bean problem please help

Beans do not get much in the way of fungal disease

You say you grew them indoors-my guess is you just planted them straight out without hardening odd first?

And artjak moving plants backwards and forwards like that is silly-that is what the cold frame is for

help please

Plum Tree Thing

I dont think that is a plum tree-leaves look wrong

Don't think I have ever fed a hydrangea and it has coped and flowered annually-what they do need is lots of water-hence the name

My guess is they have dried out-would not feed but water all through the summer to get them established

Not really-unless it is imperative-autumn time would be best-move it now and 50 % chance you will lose it

planting bulbs and seedlings

Posted: 06/06/2013 at 18:16

Plenty of bulb planters with long handles-I do not know of anything similar for seedlings-they really need to be firmed in-and that involves getting down

You may need to look at having waist high raised planting areas as a long term solution .

runner bean seed being eaten

Still not eating the bean-they are eating a rotted bean

As has been said start them of in cells etc.
