Growing tomatoes

Posted: 25/01/2015 at 17:16

I need to look through my seeds and decide if I should order a few different varieties for this year. I grew 11 varieties last year and with the fantastic number of varieties available nowadays, it's nice to grow a few different ones each year. I do have a few favourites that I seem to grow every year though: Tamina, Alicante, black cherry, gardeners delight, Shirley and red shine. What are your favourites?

My tomatoes are really cropping well now, I guess most folk are doing well with the decent weather? My latest video, taken a week ago shows cropping, a tomato plant that stopped growing and some other useful advice for this stage of the tomatoes growing year. http://youtu.be/5auHkqfsUpc

Tomsk, yes tomato feed is good for a number of plants in the greenhouse. I use it for cucumbers, peppers, melons, etc. and it works well.

Tomsk I am sure the Aldi tomato feed will be good. I generally use either tomerite or Westland but have used others with similar results.

Just the bad part of the leaf - not the entire thing. Good idea to use a clean sharp blade.

Tomsk, I agree with dovefromabove, just cut out that leaf, keep fingers crossed and it should be fine.
