I have given up on mail order after many disappointments. Stick to local nurseries or garden centres if you can. My local branches of Sainsbury's and Wilkinson have had some nice plug plants this year. Wilkininsons used to have Plug-U-Grow packs which were good value but seemingly they no longer stock them - pity.

Wilkinsons seem to have cut right back on gardening stuff this -no large bags of compost-very few plants or bedding-mind you the way they looked after them and the number they must have reduced or thrown away it is no surprise-used to get a few bargains in the rescue section-they have probably saved themselves lodasamoney this year

Blight is an airborne disease-as you probably know it will affect tomatoes as well-but shouldn't affect you growing anything else unrelated

You will obviously need to add some nutrient to the soil.

I am full of mixed emotions-miserable as sin because of constant drizzle but the occasional sunny day-happy because I don't have floods, quizzical because you cant have a months worth of rain twice in a month happy again because of the tennis, bored because of the news cliches of tennis and floods,stupid because I dont understand about the endless euro summit meetings-but other than that fine-I think

Tomato leaf problems - help

If you have a photobucket account or something similar you can link to that,

As regards watering perhaps twice a week- thoroughly- depending on the conditions -obviously you don't want them wilting.

Little and often is not the way to go.

This forum is the best place for advice-there are some really knowledgeable people on here who are always willing to help.
