Tomato leaves curling?

morning folks, here are some photos of the curly crimped leaves, compared to a normal one. First time of growing a bell pepper. It's in the greenhouse between some tomatoes and cucumbers. I have been watering it twice a week. There is the odd greenfly but nothing concerning I the bugs department. I will try watering less but if it's really hot just give this one plant some water? Thanks ever so much.

Any chance of a photo? Sounds just wonderful. Perhaps a trip to the RSPCA to give a homeless doggy a taste of your fab home? Sounds like you would be a pretty special owner and it'd be one very lucky and grateful woof woof!

Bees and more bees!

Is it true that bees get drunk on pollen? I've seen a few looking a bit wobbly and a couple that looked almost asleep? How can you tell when a bee is asleep?

Does the same apply to curly leaves on a pepper?

Don't worry Victoria Sponge. I'm sure that comment was purposefully intended to be so rude and judgemental.  Thank goodness there are kind people out there who give our furry friends a home, especially those who have been mistreated.  Time for me to exit this thread before any more judgements on ones 'ability to have meaningful relationships' are expressed. Off for a cup of tea with my lovely mother in law!! X

I'll have to give it a go then. Is it best now, or should I wait until the flowers are more open?
