May diary update

This week has been a very mixed week weather-wise when we have been dashing between heavy showers one minute and basking in sunshine the next; in many ways ideal growing conditions for weeds as well as crops.

Amongst other things this has been a tomato planting week. In the garden greenhouse we are trying our tomatoes in large grow bags using the ring culture system. This is supposed to give the root system more depth of soil in which to develop and is also supposed to help reduce the soggy compost syndrome that can affect growbags.

The rings can be purchased from Harrod Horticultural click here

In the plot green house the tomatoes are planted directly into borders which have been refreshed with bags of compost.

It will be interesting to compare the results - that is as long as the dreaded blight, that affected our plot greenhouse last year, doesn't treat us to a repeat performance.
