    I'm in! I'll sow a bush Tom, they don't get so leggy as cordons. Maybe Latah.

    Umm, can I give it a go with a couple of maskotka in hanging baskets. I tried some last year and they weren't too bad

    still eating this years toms to think about sowing more, about 6kg still to go. Then about 50kg in the out-house so not sure if I need to sow any next year, maybe a couple of gardeners delight.

    May-June for plants grown in the house, as opposed to August onwards for more conventionally grown tomatoes. If you move the plants to a greenhouse or outside when the weather warms up the fruit will ripen later.

    OK looks like I may have to play the game as well, If I sort out the office which I have been meaning to do over Christmas and haven't yet I can set up my grow stations and perhaps grow some midget bush toms like Micro Tom, Red Robin, Tiny Tim & Balconi Red
