As above! Try Dobies or Unwins as can vouch for them but any other supplier of grafted toms would be OK.

  • Yes I have grown grafted tomatoes for a few years now with outstanding success & actually ate last one after Christmas. Sold pounds for a church hall project.

I am still eating the last of my tomatoes. I have 7 left now!

I chose to grow an assortment of Dobies grafted tomatoes, 3 per grow bag. 5 bags. I sold pounds in aid of a church hall & plenty for us. Sungold  is my long term favourite but also grew  moneymaker, gardeners delight, Shirley & a dark red/brown variety, name escapes me! Plus a beefsteak one

I let mine self seed as you can always remove if in wrong place. I have a country garden backing on to stream, fields & river & don't mind seeing them popping up. If removal is important it is an easy job.

Talkback: How to prune a plum tree

Is it the same method for a gage please? We have had little fruit after an initial huge harvest but we have done little pruning. It is about 5 to 6 years old now.. Again There are only a few fruits this year with no pruning carried out. It is now very large & maybe a specialist should do it?


Philadelphus 'Mrs E.L. Robinson'

When we moved to our cottage there was a beautiful philadelphus it called " mock orange " too? Anyway sadly it died & was near a fallen over dead apple tree! I would like another Philadelphus  but it is now where to put it as the once blank canvas of a country garden is no longer blank! It is my pride & joy & I am sure I  could squeeze one in somewhere.

The old dead tree is still there but now supports clematis & bird feeders!

Outside my back door a tiny flower of night scented stock is still out. What a lovely sight in cold weather! I have also eaten my last tomato today & now must prepare for this year!
