As promised, couple of pics taken on my phone, not great quality especially taken at night.

 This is part of the window planter i made

 again not very clear, this is the raised bed which has exploded into action excluding the gap which is a failed crop of garlic, ive also planted things way to close (at the far end) as my dad keeps pointing out to me!

Gardening errors.....

I have a mint plant which needs to be dug, i planted it a couple of months back and its gone from the size of a 1 litre pot to about 12in high and wide.  I was thinking of digging it, moving it into two pots (one inside the other) then replanting it in the same spot.  Any one know if that would be ok?

Hi All,

Im new around here, loving the pics, i will post some when i go back home this weekend for your judgement on my newbie garden and veg plot.

Oh dear! What's going wrong with my toms?

Here is a pic, with both sides being equal and containing 3 trusses i think i will just leave it for now.

 EDIT: annoying how the pictures change orientation, is there a way to stop this?

Suckers have been removed each time they appear, the out of control part is, that the plant has doubled in size in under two weeks and the top just keeps on going, itwill soon out grow the window sill.

I was away from home for a week with someone watering things and the top has split into two very even looking stems with equal number of trusses. I will need to provide more support as its rather top heavy.
