Tomatoes not ripening

Posted: 25/08/2016 at 00:19

Odd isn't it; some people seem to think removing leaves is good for the poor old tomato plant.  WHY?


No other plant gets this brutal treatment.  If the leaves are green, the plant still needs them.

Leather Jackets

It really is important to keep waterbutts closely covered at all times otherwise they are a breeding-ground for all sorts of nasties.


Often the real damage to lawns is done by the rooks and starlings digging up the leatherjackets.

Start by removing all the dead branches.  There are a lot there.

Looks like a bit of blight there.  It's getting a bit late now to be encouraging more flowers and fruit.  Usually at this time of year, August, I remove the flowers as they won't make it to maturity.

All white blooms look tatty very quickly.  Just think of white buddlia for example.

How to use my kitchen food waste

Does your Council collect Food Waste or does it all go in the general waste to land-fill?


No, you cannot put compost ingredients straight on plants.  It will smell and attract flies.  Better to send it away and buy council compost if they do it.  Or set up a wormery.  You can do that on a balcony.

Mo Farah was fine, but the commentary was a disgrace! When will the commentators learn to SHUT UP when we can see what is going on perfectly well without such rubbish!
