The Gardeners Delight are shooting up and need bigger pots. They should probably also start venturing outdoors. But with “bands of cloud and rain” and “chilly northeasterlies” forecast, now may not be the moment!
Only the one flower truss still. And at this stage, so pale and tightly curled must be the flower – that I got ahead of myself, forgot where I was in the growing process and starting admiring it as a baby tomato. Oh dear, there’ s a long way between now and that moment.
I checked in at a garden centre again this weekend to make sure there are still plenty of tomato plants wanting good homes. And there were – but all grafted varieties from Suttons. I don’t know what’s happened to all other kinds. Is there is a red squirrel/grey squirrel kind of thing going on this year but played out with normal v grafted tomatoes instead?
