I have 2 campari tomato plants which I have planted into huge containers that sit on limestone chip, will this be ok? Do I take out the little shoots that appear at the bottom of the leaf by the stem. I am a newbie gardener, so any help on how to grow these appreciated.
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 have picked up a large bag of coffee grounds from my coffee house and intend to use it in the garden, what would be the most beneficial use of this high nitrogen addition? I have something eating dwarf bean so could put some around that to keep slugs away or better used for some other vegetables growth?
I have some red onions and pickling onions that have big green shoots on them and was wondering if I can plant these in the garden or not. Please advise me if I can plant them is there any special that I have to do to grow them as I have never grown any kind of onion in my garden before. I know that they do take a while to mature.
The leaves of my garlic plants are turning yellow and dry. I have been watering them regularly. Why is this so? Will applying Sequestron Yellow Leaf Tonic help? I have also been feeding them sheep pellets.
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?
