Tomatoes

Picked my first Tomatoes from the greenhouse yesterday - they were delicious. The ones in a hanging basket outside are still in flower, loads of them so should have a good crop but seem very slow to fruit or am I being too impatient?

Toms

Ours outside in hanging baskets (under a covered pergola) are like yours DM full of flower but slow to develop fruit. We commented last evening when sitting out that we have seen very few bees this year. Perhaps not getting fertilized properly. Anybody else noticed this. Doesn't bode well for the runner beans, we've had a good meal of broad beans though with lots more to come. foxy x

Tomatoes

very very peculiar weather this year.

to have picked ripe tomoatoes already i think is extremly good - I have a fair amount of green tom's but am not expecting them to ripen until the very earliest early august, full harvest in september.

I have many several plants - well 12 - and they are all stunted as a result of the very hot april we (well down my neck of the woods anyway) had and the very wet dull grey May and June, july has been wet/dry/sun/wet/dry/sun intermittently (sp), my tom plants are usually a good 5-7 foot high most of mine this year the tallest is about 5 but the average is 3 foot.

make sure you remember to tom feed once a week once the flowers start coming - they need the potassium to promote the fruit growth.
