Enjoyed reading this, although if you are inclined to take suggestions, i would say you should start it/transfer to it to one fo the free blog sites, blogger.com or wordpress.

It makes it much easy to read and navigate, it doesnt cost anything and is very easy to setup.

You could then link it in this post each week to let people know its been updated, given all the issues with pictures and navigation on this forum i think it will stand the test of time better without links/pictures disapearing.

herbes

Most herbs can be grown on any window sill, just sow them as per the instructions on the packet and away they will go, some do better than others depending on temperatures and light etc.

I have basil, coriander and parsley growing on the window sill, things have slowed down now due to the weather turning, but they will still grow.

I start mine in a propagation tray but its not neccessary, a sandwich/freezer bag can serve the same purpose while they germinate.

Just have a go and see if it works, and if not, try something else.

What do I do with these seedlings?

Aquilegia Vulgaris are fully hardy so you can plant them out i believe, expect them to flower may-june

Tomato’s haven’t started to ripen yet – Anything I can do?

Posted: 14/09/2013 at 12:32

Ive had quite a few suggestions from my dad on this.

Bananas (they release ethylene) can be placed in with the plants or fruits, this helps to ripen them.

I have cut down a couple of plants and hung the tomatos in the greenhouse, these have already produced ripe fruit and are the back end plants.

Some are still out in the garden and are still rippening, but they are progressing.

Also make sure to continue to feed them.

I put alfalfa down at the end of July, first time trying so will provide feedback after winter.

It might to late, but having said that, i picked nearly all the chillis off one of my plants and noticed a couple of day later that it had new flowers again, with a week the chilli pod was formed and is about 3 inch long, still green of course.

Hi Andy, I am not 100% sure, tomatos will polinate from a single plant, and i think chillis can too, although i never grow a single plant.

Is it possible they are not being pollinated?  try transfering the pollen from one to the other, i use a little paint brush, flicking the stem can also work.

It should recover naturally, mine throws out new leaves so appears to be ok.
