Campari Tomatoes: I have these in 80cm high containers (1 in each) they sit on white limestone chip. Will snails get to these? How tall will these grow, and I have a large stake in each container. Will these grow the same as a normal tomatoe ie beefsteak etc.? Or should they be espaliered? I am watering each day, and they are growing at the rate of 1cm per day.

I brought a borage seedling three weeks ago and thought if I left it on my kitchen window sill til warmer weather comes it would be good for it, but it looks as if it has bolted? Could this be the case and does this mean I should not plant it in the strawberry patch as planned?
