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.
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?
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.
I love welsh poppies; they seed themselves in unexpected places and never become a nuisance.
Nettle and comfrey feed. Dilute to the colour of weak tea. Probably 10:1
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.
