Tomatoes splitting

This is due to the soil getting dry. Happened to a few of mine this year.

Chocolate Cosmos

Posted: 31/08/2014 at 13:15

The leaves at the centre of the plant may just be old and the upper leaves will probably block out sunlight to them.

It could be erratic watering, usually letting the plant dry out causes leaves to go brown and shrivel.

Could you post a pic? I could probably diagnose it better then.

I grow chocolate cosmos in the ground and flowers right up until November

Sweet Peppers

The plant is too big to bring indoors and the days are slowly getting shorter, I cant see any flowers producing fruit to be honest either :P

The plant only cost me 80p so its not a bad return!

Cutting Back Penstemons

Posted: 30/08/2014 at 21:20

I took some cuttings 2 weeks ago of some Penstemon in small terracotta pots using mpc and grit.

They have tiny leaves coming from the side shoots so I'm hoping that these will have rooted in a week or so's time so I can pot them on

Sweet Peppers

Hi all I have had 8 lovely big sweet Peppers from my plant. It is starting to produce new flowers now.

What I'm wondering is that its now coming to September and I'm thinking is it best to discard the plant now?

Do you think these flowers will produce ripe fruit in my greenhouse before it gets too cold?
