Talkback: Tomato - cold weather damage

Posted: 03/05/2015 at 01:14

Also, not much point in giving Lifechange advise on his plants, I should think after three years his plants are well dead!

Help/advice needed

Totally agree with Hollie, that is illegal, should be reported, get a certified gas fitter to have a look.

In the mean time, maybe you could just trip over it and sue the person that laid them like that.



Oh dear oh dear,,oh dear......

Well said MDW84, I think there is far too much feed stuffs going around these days. Far better to start a compost heap, add some farmyard manure, you can buy this at a garden centre if you are not near a farm, put this on nice and thick in the late Autumn, or early Spring,  thats all you need. 

Having said that, if you have acid soil, as I have, you will need to add lime if you want to grow cabbages, or any brassica.

Get some high potash plant food for tomatoes, tubs and baskets, but not too early, make your plants work before you make them too cosy.

We have some fantastic gardens down here in Cornwall, they dont douse the ground with FBB through the year, also the heathers on the Moors here are fantastic, no one goes up there feeding them.

Whats wrong

Too cold, are you keeping them in. I sow mine now, put out in the middle of summer, bring back in for the winter then plant out next Spring as big plants, they dont always overwinter in their first year if you leave them out.. If you get them big first, they dont get eaten by slugs.

Have you tried wrapping something round the spout, like plumbers tape or something to make a washer out of.

I have really cheap plastic ones, one in each greenhouse, the rose is good for tiny seedlings I have had them for too many years to remember, never dribbled or leaked. Probably came from a supermarket.

It is now working fine, there is a setting that you have to unclick to remove ALL adds, I had it set on allow non intrusive adds.

I have always had it on the laptops but couldnt get it on the tablets. Anyway, its now working fine and is brilliant.

How much stone to remove.

When I dug my borders we had enough rocks to built a little dry stone wall along the front of the property. They couldnt have been left but I do leave any that are up to  1·5 inches accross, anything else gets dumped.
