Talkback: Eight ways to get a better tomato harvest

Posted: 26/06/2015 at 08:37
In previous years I have grown tomatoes in large pots but this year I have them in much smaller one, due to the cost of compost as the larger ones use so much, I wondered if they will succeed in smaller (3 ltr) pots.

I had mice in my GH so I put  humane traps down and then let them out about 11/2 miles away, as I couldn't kill them

I like Hellebores but not sure about being in a pot

Thanks for that I am a bit worried that if they are still green the goodness won't have gone into the bulb as it does with daffidils etc.

Can anybody please advise me the best way to overwinter my agapanthus.  At the moment they are in an unheated greenhouse but they are still green.  Is this okay?

Does this mean I have to store them until July? The article is a little confusing!!

Can anybody please tell me how to  store Agapanthus for the winter.  Mine still has leaves on do I let them die down and then take the bulbs out of the compost and then put them in the greenhouse or do I put them in the greenhouse before the frosts with the leaves still on them? I haven't grown them before and I don't want to lose them

I wondered if you can advise me.  I have had some rooting powder for several years and I wondered if it goes "off"    I  also heard that you do not use is for geraniums, is this correct.
