How do you grow to tomatoes up the string please? Do you tie them into the string that is dangling down?

hello - just catching up on the gardening section in the paper. Lovely picture of trees in pots in Alan Titchmarsh's garden. Does anyone know what type of trees they are please? Here is the picture (Telegraph Gardening Section 20 June15). Many thanks.

Was he elderly?? I don't think so! In his prime.

I have a lovely Veronica gentianoides in my border and would like to create more plants from it. I've read that it can either be divided or grown from seed. I've only had it a year so would rather not divide it yet.

The flowers on mine have gone over, but I can't see where the seeds are. Anyone got any pointers?

I thought that gentleman's lawn was fantastic. He must be a skilful and hardworking chap. I admire that kind of dedication and applaud it.  


Courgette plant leaf gone yucky

My courgette leaves do this too. I just wait until they look bad enough to take off. Doesn't seem to don the plant any harm. 

Tomato seedling mix up - can anyone identify?

Hi Cat - I'd suggest the plant on the right is gardeners delight. In my experience they tend to grow faster than Roma and the leaves fall out just as they have on yours. It's a best guess though. Hope you get some nice tomatoes. They look very healthy.

Thanks Andrea.  No flowers on mine yet too. Did you get any of the other seeds? I managed to get all of them but only the Experimental and Fandango germinated. They are doing well; about the same as the experimental ones.
