I have a lovely acer in a pot protected by large tubs of bamboo, but still seems to be suffering from wind/sun burn.
Freshairfanatic, I have a tray underneath mine, should I remove it?
Forecast rain showers in Devon, has been glorious! Grass cut front and back, risked some Zinnias in the sunny border as i have loads. left a tray of surplus out by the front gate, all the Toms went but nobody loves my Shastas!
Likewise figrat, Toms are OK, first flowers only just appearing, but peppers both the ones I grew from seed and ones I bought are pathetic things! Would try the bottom heat, if your are like mine they can't get much worse.
Warmth is the thing as sotongeoff says, wouldn't start to feed until first fruits develop otherwise may get lots of leaf and not much else.
Has just clouded over ready for todays bout of rain, have put some Zinnia's in with fingers firmly crossed.
I have had success with Penstimon cuttings from the "mother" plant now have half a dozen for nothing.
Will have a look for some HyppyByker to see if they will work on my cheap as chips greenhouse!
Plant swapping is the best! Do you think that if I leave my surplus tomato plants by the front gate someone will givew them a good home?
Completely agree, have ordered the special offer perrenials from the Gardeners World mag, have nowhere for them to go without digging up something exsisting, but cannot resist a plant or a bargain! Yesterdays purchase was another Phormium.
Not sure either is Penstemon, leaf shape looks entirely different from mine, could be wrong though!
