Growing Tomatoes in Pots

Posted: 21/05/2014 at 19:29

I grow Roma, a plum type, you dont remove side shoots from those. They are the type that bush then all set at the same time. This is known as determinate. What variety is yours Steven.

Cucumber babies - male or female?

You may need to remove all the flowers, fruits as well on the lower 2 sets of leaves or the plant will be busy making friuts and not growing into a nice big plant. Once its seeded it will think its job is done.

Pinching out certain tomato varieties

I am pretty certain that you do not remove side shoots from any of those varieties, I grew Roma last year and this year, just leave them to do their own thing.

Ground elder!

Dig down about a foot along the fence and place some plastic there, the roots of ground elder are not too deep. This worked for me.

You can then just dig it out and it wont come back, not from under the fence anyway.  If you leave an inch of root in it will grow again.

I agree with Jeff, try not to get the leaves wet, water only from the bottom, just the compost.

Anyone grown Swan River daisies ?

Posted: 11/05/2014 at 23:49

Here is a basket with it in from last year, the little whitish daisy on the right, the lavender one is on the left. I think they probably bloomed about July time.

If you dead head regular they keep blooming. I have grown some this year but not many, i find it a bit untidy
