Issue with my tomatoes

Posted: 18/08/2016 at 00:07

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.

Spoilt flowers petals on white hydrangea heads.

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!

Don't let it seed as it will throw them all over the place.

They have a wonderful flavour, but I won't grow them again because they rot before they are ripe all over.  Such a shame.

Wild orchids

Apparently the only people that are allowed to destroy orchids on road-side banks, roundabouts and verges are the Council mowers.  They seem to be above the law!!  Orchids are protected for everybody else.
