Tomato Problems

Posted: 01/09/2012 at 15:32

I've had problems with my Rosada tomato plants this year, both in the greenhouse and in a raised bed in the veg garden. It's either leaf mould or tomato blight. Anyone else had problems this year - is it because of the wet summer??? I would be grateful for any comments - thanks

ps wire brushing brickwork might do more damage than the ivy - proceed with caution!! (retired bricklayer and builder)

Ivy destroys the appearance of brickwork new and old. In my experience the scars left by ivy last for years if not forever. My home is surrounded by an old wall, I removed the ivy 26 years ago and the brickwork is still marked.

Thuja plicata 'Atrovirens'

Hi

I've just planted a Thuja hedge and I'm not sure whether to stake or not. The hedge is protected from wind and in a sheltered position. Also, should I encourage the pants to have one leader or just leave them to get on with it. If it helps, the ultimate required height is about 3 metres. Thanks for any comments.

Hi

I would be very grateful for any suggestions as to the id of this plant. It stands over 5 feet high and appeared in my garden this year. I don't know whether to pull it up or be chuffed with it.  It has small prickly round flower heads (I think they're flower heads). Thanks for any comments.

Thank you so much for the replies. It 's definately Caper Spurge - I just had a look on Google. I should have posted a thread years ago, it's been driving me nuts.

 

Thanks again

I've had these growing in my garden for many years and despite my best efforts I have been unable to identify them. They are about 750mm tall  and when young the stems have a reddish hue. I would be very grateful for any suggestions.
