New Shed Advice

The base definitely needs to be level. Choice of roof is purely personal, I prefer apex but would'nt turn down a pent if it was offered.

If the base is'nt level the framework of the shed will be distorted, a bit of work now will save lots of hassle in the fiture.

During my apprenticeship, it was long 'weights', LH screw drivers and sky hooks

fish,blood and bone use as additive to compost for potting on tomatoes.

Never needed to feed toms until the first truss sets, as David says you run the risk of too much foliage at the expense of flowers.

They are more likely to go to seed. I dont think the rootball will grow much more but if you are'nt desperate for space you could leave tehm and see what happens.

Last summer was on the whole dry and celeriac need a LOT of water, so this may be why they did'nt swell?

Did you remember to turn your clocks back?

I hardly water mine at all over the winter, they are kept in a cold polytunnel then put out into a cold frame.

Yellowing of the leaves can be caused by too much or perversely too little fertiliser, it might be the compost is spent and you need to get them in the ground?

Happy Mothers Day.

If they are still in pots make sure you haven't overwatered them as this can cause yellowing of the leaves.
