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.

Hi,

I have some mystery cardoon/artichoke plants that have sprouted in my garden and I’m unsure if I should try and blanch the stems to eat, or wait for globes to grow to eat as artichokes.

Is there any simple way to tell the difference between a cardoon and a globe atrtichoke so I know what to do with them?

Re. your recent email – it says to fill the pots with a good quality potting mix and then says to choose a substrate that holds moisture and drains well. Does that mean to add a layer over the potting mix or is it still referring to the potting mix itself?

Club root is in parts of our garden. I’ve read many websites, all suggesting there’s no short fix, taking 7-20 years for soil to be ‘renewed’. We have stopped growing brassicas in affected areas of the garden. Do you have any suggestions to improve the affected soil?

With thanks
Teresa

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?
