So this year I decided to go one step further, and grow my tomato plants from seeds. Instead of the three plants I grew last year, there are now about a dozen growing on the patio this year.
But I noticed last week that the plants had branches that were curling under, and I was worried that they had some dreadful disease. I called in Margaret, the expert in all things to do with tomato growing, and she assured me that the only thing wrong with my tomatoes was that I was showing them too much love, and giving them too much water. So I have improved the drainage of the pots, and stood them on bricks rather than in trays, and my plants are looking much more healthy now.
Hopefully there'll be some photos later on in the summer!
