get them planted asap, they will flower later this year. probably September onwards

Lilac - few flowers, viburnum no flowers & camassia few flowers! Why?

Maybe they are hungry? Do you put down any slow relase fertilisers annually?

Flowers to early on tomatoes

They should be fine, I'm guessing the flowers will mature as the plant grows, just let nature do its thing

Tomatoes in a cold GH

My tomatoes have been perfect in my greenhouse Though if the temperature was due below 5c I covered them in fleece.

It got down to 1.4c one night last week and they werent affected with fleece over the top of them

10-15L pots work much better than growbags, I still cant understand growbags, they are way too shallow.
