Isn't a thankyou in order?

Ooh David! Sweet peas. Hadn't thought of doing them. Nice!

and Robot and sotongeoff, I agree, especially those who 'think' they know everything. But I do believe no matter how much you know, little or a lot, there is a certain way of sharing that knowledge, which you guys do to perfection. Precise, informative and clear. Without belittling people and sarcasm. Love it!

I actually only joined/registered a couple of days ago purely because you folks seem polite and courteous to everyone, whether they're a newbie to gardening (like myself) or the peeps who know what they are doing. I visit a few forums on a few sites when I google a question, and they pop up in the search results, but many of the others seem full of sarcastic souls, who make you feel small for not knowing what might seem obvious to them. I love this site, and glad I joined. You all have valuable information that a newbie like me needs to learn. So a big thankyou to all of you! xx

Mine are exactly the same, so we'll be racing to see who's first, yours or mine!

What's the weather like in your area?

I could literally cry for my poor plants and seedlings outside! After all this constant rain, I walked round the garden 10 minutes ago, in glorious sunshine, hoping it would last, cleared a few slugs, checked my very soggy Elan strawberry plant, and came back in content that it was brighter today. Sat down to pop on here and then the heavens have just opened!!! On my poor babies!! Again!! LOL Sunny Staffordshire is NOT so sunny.

As a new gardener this year, it hasn't been the best weather to cope with.

Oh well. All still a learning experience for my first 'proper' year next year, right? LOL

Advice on repotting my tomato plants please.

LOL! Thankyou Ogster! I have no intentions whatsoever of using manure. I'm enjoying learning how to grow things, but not that much! ha ha ha!

I'm struggling enough to get my soggy Elan strawberry plant to fruit, poor little thing.x

Thanks for the advice. x

Thankyou all! I do realize it's a bit late for fruit, but it was actually something my 3 year old started. She wanted to grow seeds, and I thought this would be easy for her, and quick. Although I might add it has since turned into a bigger experiment than I thought, with over 15 different fruit and veg going on!

I'm not that fussed about it fruiting, but will try the bag method if and when anything happens. xx

what is the red chilli for please?

LOL I only registered last night as I had a query on my tomato plants, and wondered the same thing, so glad you asked. I've been using the site unregistered for a few months now, and thought exactly the same. A lovely bunch of people! The best site to sign up to. xx

Hi There. I've been using this site for a few months now for various answers to questions as I am a new gardener, but can't seem to find the answer to my current problem.

I am about to repot 2 of my 7 week old Tomato plants into bigger flower buckets, but am in two minds about the compost to use. They have never been outdoors, and are currently in Durstons MultiPurpose Compost, which I use for everything, but as they are now big and quite strong, I am thinking about the fertilizing stage, although they still have no flowers as I sowed the seeds late.

Would I be best carrying on using the MP Compost, and buy seperate fertilizer, or can I use the Durstons Growbag I have, which has fertilizer already included in the mix? And if I used the growbag content in my buckets, would I still need to fertilize them further on down the road anyway?

 I'm sorry if this seems a basic question, but I'm a first time grower.

Thanks in advance.
