Koralik tomato query

Thanks, yes, I wasn't too worried about it, just curious really - as I say they're perfectly edible. They have very good blight resistance too.

Koralik tomato query

Posted: 30/08/2016 at 14:29

I've been growing Koralik tomatoes every year for a while now from kept seeds. This year they are fine again, but a few plants from the same batch that I gave to my parents are producing plum-shaped rather than round fruit. It's not a big problem as they're still perfectly edible, but it's odd and I was wondering if anyone knows why this happens? I don't think it can be cross-pollination as mine are fine, so it must be something environmental.


Thanks

dracaena propagation

Posted: 26/06/2014 at 11:58

I'm looking to propagate a dracaena from stem sections, and I've read the article on here about putting them in water. However the recommendations I've seen elsewhere are to put them in compost. Wondering if anyone has any thoughts about which method is better?

Hyacinth?

Well if it's that tricky telling the difference maybe I should start charging people to come and see them...

Hyacinth?

Thanks all. Judging by what it says here about Spanish ones having upright stems, and here about having non-white pollen, it seems they are Spanish. And that would tally with them having taken over the garden.

Wondering if anyone knows what the plant in the foreground is? It looks like some kind of hyacinth to me but I can't find one similar. thanks

I see we now have golden root mealybug that can survive winter outdoors. Oh dear.

thanks, yes I think it's the Photinia Fraseri isn't it?

Here's another view of the second one, if it helps pin it down at all.
