Tomatoes - time to sow!

Posted: 02/03/2017 at 16:49

Yes, always sow when you know it's right for your area and the environment that your growing in. Mine are for greenhouse tomatoes and anytime from mid Feb to early April will suffice.

Victorian Colossal climbing peas in pots

Thanks David, it will be interesting to see how they do. I have grown runner beans in similar pots for the last few years and they have been great, so fingers crossed that the peas do well too! I have a couple of plants left over, so will find a place for them in the veg garden and will compare the performance. Are you growing any this year?

Growing onions with Simon

 These are the Kelsae onions that I grew in a large pot, as shown in my you tube video series.  See them in part 5 and 6. I made some lovely French onion soup at the weekend With one of them! 

Here is a link to the playlist for all the series about growing these and Sturon onions from seeds and sets respectively.

Hi Barry, great to hear your update. You have had much more of an issue with rot on the onions than I have. Mine was just more a size issue! I was very pleased with the kelsae onions grown from seed and planted in the large pot, I will be using that method again next year. My greenhouse tomatoes have been very good this year, like yours. Good to share the update. Cheers, Simon.

Growing tomatoes

My tomatoes are doing really well so far this year, they already have 3 trusses of flowers showing with flowers open on trusses 1 & 2. They are at perhaps the stage shown or just a bit further on than shown in my part 4 of growing tomatoes videos. Here is the link:

Thanks Barry! Yes tatties are very difficult to clear every last one of the little ones when harvesting. I confine mine to bags now which works a treat. Your garlic sounds great and you planted it out before me by about 4 weeks, mine is looking good too ( tops) but don't know what they are like underground. Onions are doing well.
