Thanks folks.  Sadly I don't think they will ever meet again!

Flowers mean they are fertile, but you probably need more than one variety for pollination.

They are doing their best, give them a helping hand by buying a bush of a different variety.

Oh dear!  Naked gardening day was next to Camera Corner.  Now they are apart.  It made me smile every time I saw it.

Bob Flowerdew on GQT was very dismissive of their cropping ability.  Big plant, small crop.

Garlic- rookie error!

It is a bit early for them to be going yellow, naturally.  One year mine collapsed with fungus disease.  It's not that is it?

how much water for my tomatoes

You can tell if they have enough/too much water when beads of water appear along the edges of the leaves.

Tomatoes are a plant that can be grown hydroponically so I would think it is difficult to over-water, but easy to wash all the nutrients out of the grow-bag.

Privet in flower attracts a huge number of butterflies.

Identification of a yet another weed

I love welsh poppies; they seed themselves in unexpected places and never become a nuisance. 

Compost!

Nettle and comfrey feed.  Dilute to the colour of weak tea.  Probably 10:1

Potatoes

If you can get hold of them you can plant some now - it is a bit late - but you may lose them to blight which usually strikes later in the summer.

I certainly grow early varieties which mature before blight knocks them back.
