Need Help Identifying Poundland Tomatoes

Posted: 14/07/2014 at 01:15
Small tomatoes grow on normal sized plants, not dwarf.

Look like cordon tomatoes to me. Can you not put them in a much bigger pot if you decide it is too late to split them up.

Lidl bulbs and plants

If you want to buy the correct colours and plants, why are you buying from Lidl? If it matters to you, and it seems it does, use a specialist supplier. There are plenty of them around.

I have always used Peter Nyssen for bulbs and their ilk and the one time I had a mis-labelled lily bulb it was changed immediately.

Lidl and Aldi sell cheap plants for a reason. In my opinion they treat their growing plants badly, but I've found their seeds are good.

Cauliflower conundrum

Cauliflowers are very challenging to grow if you are not experienced. If they are flowering, you have left them too late to eat. The advice to bend a leaf over the cauliflower is for when it is much smaller to protect it from too much sun.

All you should do now is eat them, unless they have gone too far.

Is the strawberry plant young? If it is, that is normal and it will have more strawberries next year.

I Use a Dymo. Have had it for several years and use it in the kitchen as well. It has really earned its keep, even though it seemed expensive to buy.

The Buff-tip died after laying eggs. I didn't kill it, honest.
