I think a repeat planted row of lavenders would look good in one of the long planters, like a mini lavender hedge, it would also smell great if you're sat outside. I'm sure others here will have suggestions too.

Green tomato chutney sounds delicious 

The rest of my tommies have so far been unaffected, they seem to particularly like growing by the side of my front garden, I think the light must be better there. We haven't had a large crop and most are like yours, still green, but we have picked more than some other years.

It's good to hear your plants have survived and are growing well.

Any updates on your tommies Dove?

Fingers still crossed here.

They'll still be fine to eat. I had some that looked like that in a large bed last year, I left them in and pulled them up as and when I wanted. Some stayed in the ground right up until spring (survived the snow too), when I wanted to plant the bed up with flowers.

Seeds are currently 50p a pack at my local Wyvale Garden Centre. I stocked up on broad beans, peas and some lettuce which is supposed to be good over winter.

It's rainy here and I have a headache.
