The difference

There is also a Dreaming Swan Joyce 

Loads of tomatoes but very slow in ripening

Only remove leaves that are shading fruit.  For me I want no more growth, the fruit has formed, is of good size and just needs ripening.  Hence the removal of leaves.  No point now in allowing more flower set or more fruit to form.  

Missy Krissie, if you remove leaves too soon your fruit will be small.  

Once tomatoes start to ripen they will progress very quickly.  Don't give up hope folks....time yet

B3 ..."whims"?  Far from it.  they are essential must haves

Nut is expert at Iding ....not veronicastrum 

i grow them here where they are in full flower.

always cut back dead flower stems and do so as soon as flowers start to go over then you have a better chance of re flowering.

Yes, agree with you sheps about the numbers.

the only nematodes I use on the lawn are for lewtherjackets and I will be applying these in next couple of weeks 

oh! Don't forget to water them in later and again the following day.

just watched GW and the tribute to Geoff Hamilton

his inspirational style made him unique. he made GW unmissable and a joy to watch. I guess it has all been said but a sad loss.
