Grafted tomato plants

Posted: 11/08/2012 at 13:16

I don't think I will bother with grafted Tomato plants - I have tried one this year but really can't see any difference to the ones I have grown from seed.The grafted Aubergines I am very impressed with - I have picked 6 large sized Aubergines from 3 plants and there are plenty more to come. The plants grown from seed are only just starting to produce

Maggy - Do you think all the rain we have had may have something to do with the leaves going yellow?

disappointing peppers

I have noticed that the Pepper plants I bought later in the season to replace some of the onesI grew from seed are growing well - unlike the early ones - I still blame the weather

window boxes are a wash out this year

grai - don't get disheartened - next year WILL be better I am sure

Kate - cuttings are so easy  I wouldn't be able to afford to buy all the plants I need so have to take cuttings  It will soon be time to start taking them

plants in the garden have suffered in the awful weather we have had but my wall baskets have been really beautiful - even though I do say so myself  I grew all the plants except for the Calibroachas from cuttings taken at the end of last summer

Last year I bought a £2.99 Constance Elliott Passion flower from Sainsburys and it isn't - it is just the ordinary one  Should I complain ?
