    I have a few tomato plants still fruiting in the GH and a couple of rooted armpits in water that I'll pot up soon (when I remember)
    Will try to keep something alive over winter.

    I can see a sideshoot on that plant

    I have a little sideshoot/armpit that I planted in a pot on my window cill. It's actually got some tiny flowers growing, they aren't out yet but they might be by next month. It's only 4 inches high lol but looks fine still.

    All my remaining tomatoes split after freezing on the night we went down to -3C, they went in a casserole that day to use them up!

    Now time for a big clear out in there.


    I've got 2 plants growing slowly in the spare bedroom, and another rooted armpit on the kitchen windowledge.

    Take the flowers off Scoot, you want the plant to grow, not fruit.

    So, no further results? I wondered why they produce seeds... Now to next year, I have kept one Tigerrella plant that had re-shooted after I cut it back, and that was before I read this thred, it`s now about 4" high and in the unheated greenhouse, I occasionally water it and might fleece around it if there`s any frost coming, I`ll go take a pic so I can compare later.
    My concern is that you might just hibernate blight in your pots/beds with out realising it.
    My friend Anne, the Tomatoe queen round these parts, always starts afresh and with some new varieties. She starts propagating seeds in Jan` and never fails to produce a good harvest well before me,indoors,greenhouse, polytunnel and outside in pots! so I`m taking a leaf out of her book and propagate early. If enough is grown and harvested then there will be no need to take up plant space over winter, that`s my thought anyway.
