Growing Tomatoes Outside?

Posted: 01/04/2015 at 10:03

I always grow mine outside, lots of different varieties and all do well! The secret is too get the stakes in and secured as soon as possible and don't let them get too tall! A watering system helps too if that's possible

Monty's wildlife garden

I'm all for a bit of mess at the back of a border or under shrubs, that's where the little critters tend too hide. The only thing is in most of gardens I tend to on a precessional basis, the clients want everything tidied up, even to the point where every leaf is blown out and raked up and removed! Mine on the other hand has a pile of oak logs that have been sitting for 2 years awaiting the chainsaw and axe, when ever I move one I find either a frog or a mouse nest! Only problem it's sitting on my decking and I'm sure the BBQ will need too come out of hibernation within a month or two

J Parkers

I've just had a delivery from parkers, 55 perennials and 6 bare root roses (lost label, so going cheap). So far so good, the perennials seem to be growing on ok and the roses are a waiting game for the next month I guess! This was the firsy time i'd used them but if anything doesn't cime on I'll be straight on the phone. Regarding t & m, I've used these many times and yes sometimes the tiny plugs can be a bit disappointing and a bit hit and miss. Whenever I've complained they have replaced with no qualms.

I've used fentongallon for bulbs, you can get massive bags but I think they do mostly daffs

Bowles Mauve Cutting

ive found they respond quite well to a really hard cut back, I appreciate that this isn't the recommended method of rejuvinating the plant. This year I'll be taking a load of cuttings and not giving them all away this time!
