Pippa was excellent....think she was part of Geoff Hamilton's GW or maybe AT.  A real pest and disease expert.

I potted tomato plants earlier in the week....look absolutely fine.  Potted some yesterday and they are fine.  Potted 3 today and will check tomorrow.  

I have used a lot of wyevale compost these past few weeks and everything looks good and healthy.

Bodix, 

do you know the variety? If its 15' tall the soil is suitable. I also don't think it is a nutrient problem. does it look healthy as a pale green tree?

oh! Welcome Bodix

pleasantly surprised this year with quality of some of the mpc's.  Wyevale own brand is excellent.  

I used a friend's B & Q compost  but not impressed.   last year's so not sure if they have improved theirs.

is this view shared?  Are composts getting better?
