Growing Tomatoes in Pots

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.

Tomsk, glad that you liked my videos and sounds like this week will be your week of planting in big pots! Like you, my dahlias have got decent size buds now and should start flowering soon. My mum has one in full flower today - looks great.

my tomatoes have now got the first tomatoes set and I filmed my next video last night. Hope to issue it this week, so watch this space!
