Tomatoes

Best ever year for tomatoes.  Huge crops of Shirley and sweet million.  Delicious.

I grow grafted plants.......second year.  They are expensive but the increased yield and healthier looking plants are worth it.  Mine too are indoors.  Apart from an initial regime of Epsom salts and skimmed milk sprays and a fortnightly Tom feed they have had little attention.

Dont give up on growing tomatoes heather

Depends on variety Steve, but it's worth cutting  that honeysuckle right back in the dormant season. I had 2 different varieties on an arch that I had to cut back severely. Both recovered and now flourish.  Have lost honeysuckle too though  

Glad you have great supportive family dove.....that's nice 

Gardengirl, that apple pie looks scrumptious. ......some for me?  Cos you are my favourite 

Just had local site meeting to discuss a  planning application backing onto my property.  However it looks excellent so no concerns about it 

Was a bit cooler but now sun has suddenly given us some real heat again

Glad to hear you're improving Dove.....albeit only slightly.  

Yet another fine day in prospect.  Think temps went down to 10 last night so getting cool

Love that pale blue variety fidget.  Respect for growing from seed 

I divide salvia patens most years ....treat them same as dahlia tubers (patens form tubers) and grow  both dark and pale blue forms plus guanajuato which has bigger amd very dark blue flowers but even more tender.

Definitely, otherwise leave them alone.  I will also resist potting on cuttings now....chris Lloyd said something about this, viz., about not forcing too much growth right now, just letting things tick over during winter.
