Green plant swap - spread the word!

Hi, 

 

I just stumbled across this great website called Green Plant Swap (www.greenplantswap.co.uk) where anyone can sign up for free and either buy, sell or swap plants you have grown with other like minded growers in your area and I think it's a great idea.

You can recycle the plants that would otherwise end up on the bonfire or the compost each year and it's also a simple way for you to share the seedlings and young plants that multiply more abundantly than you have room for - instead of chucking them, SWAP them or even sell them! to your neighbours.

Sadly, having registered there seems to be a slight lack in members near me so I thought I would try to spread the word and get people on here as the more people that join, the more advantageous it will be for everyone!

P.S I don't work for these guys, I just genuinely think it's a great idea!

Tomato/Chilli Transplants not growing!

Posted: 26/04/2013 at 08:08

Hi, 

I have been growing tomatoes (various cultivars), chilli's and peppers indoors for a few months now in my heated propagator. Once some grew some true leaves I transplanted into 7cm individual pots in fresh multi purpose compost and left in a homemade tin foil lined box by a south facing window to grow on.

This was almost a month ago and as far as I can see, there has been little or no growth at all in all that time. Is there a reason for this?  

I would even say the foliage looks ever so slightly chlorotic as well - could this be a nutrient deficiency (although this was a multi purpose compost so I can't see how!)?

Some other tomato seeds I sowed after I transplanted the others and left in my propagator for longer have overtaken these transplants already although i'm reluctant to transplant now!

Can anyone help?

 

Thanks

Is this sufficient time for the material to rot down sufficiently to enable planting on top in May/June?
