Followed Swiss Sue's link and did a bit of reading and digging around, actually a very good link. Cheers SS. Found this page - with regards to purple marks on tomato leaves - confirms my hiniting.

What was the root system like before you put them in ? Did you grow them in modules/cells or were they grown in situ.

Looking at the size pot, the plant with the purple marks on it's leaf, probably could do with a bigger pot. When I don't pot on tomato plants quickly enough or they get a chilled on a night....some varieties show these classic symptoms. But they soon disappear when put into their final 25lt tubs and continue to grow into strong plants.

Seriously, these plants are fine.

Talkback: How to grow strawberries

You've got to water your strawberries regardless of whether the straw is there or not. Otherwise your fruit won't swell, so yes, water and continue to water.

Runner bean problem please help

Posted: 09/06/2013 at 11:18

Sounds like they've suffered from the effects of cold. I know this because a beginner friend of mine who is new to the allotment world, her Runner Beans have suffered the same fate. Nowt left of them now.....just stems. Probably the main reason - she didn't harden them off first, for a few weeks. Big mistake !!

Definitely doesn't look like blight to me. Your plants will be ok. Probably due to extreme hot and cold temperatures and water splashes.

Cleaning out a pond

Ooops, chose a few wrong words in my post. Must be getting late. 

Cleaning out a pond

Posted: 08/06/2013 at 22:17

I'd stir it up slightly to left the sludge from the bottom and do a particle water change. Do this a couple of times, from now til late August and over time your pond should become clearer.

Really you shouldn't clean ponds by emptying the water fully. This upsets the balance and causes many problems. If possible use only rain water to refill, as tap water can start algal blooms.

Failing that, fill buckets/tubs/kids pools with tap water and let it sit for a week or two. Get yourself a big sieve to strain and catch any wildlife, and count the buckets of water.

This is the best way of changing water without too much disturbance.Oh, and don't go crackers when you start to stir up the sludge.
