why not buy tomatoe seed in the canaries I grow " tomate tres cantos" here in south yorkshire from seed purchased in Tenerife it produces good crops of well rounded medium sized fruits with a really good flavour.the seed suppliers are Eurogarden S.F and cost 2Euros for 2 grammes of seed.
I agree GG but you have to agree there's a difference between differing opinions and petty comments just to rub people up the wrong way (i.e the cost of the new GH and who's paid for it) if it enhances the programme and the knowledge it shares who cares.
well said Dove, Sotongeoff & Palaisglide lets get some sanity back into these comments remember tv is designed as an entertainment media it's just good to sit down on friday night at 8.30 and say come on BBC2 entertain me for1/2 an hour and if I learn something great thats something extra.
hope you have great success with your plants I inherited mine from selfset seeds from my neighbours garden quite a few years ago and everyyear they put on a marvellous display my soil is neutral on a veryshallow sandstone bedrock base but they seem to thrive on it.it's great to sit out inthe garden with the old G & T when the seed pods are ripe it just sounds like loads of champagne corks popping as they distribute their seeds for yet more plans next year.
don't pussy foot about roses look beautifull but most are as hardy as a true yorkshireman prune em hard and they will still love you i've done it for the past 30odd years
look out for their fruit tree offerings £3.95 each for pear,apple ,plum and cherry all very good well grafted stock forget about the posh names just look at the quality and the prices nobody forces you to buy.
thanks sotongeoff first time I've used the forum and will definately use it again to boost my gardening knowledge when I have a problem/query.
I'm a dahlia virgin just bought some tubers of various varieties and they are still in their packaging. I in the snow bound area of south yorkshire and temps have not been above -3 for over a week what should I be doing with my new purchases at the moment, any help appreciated to keep my interest going.
