Forum home The potting shed

Two quick questions

The title says it all.

1 - Is it too late to do tomatoes from seed? So do I need to get plants in? I have been too busy to do tomatoes so far, but I have the tomato shelter and a grow bag ready.

Here in Notts the seasons are running about 3 weeks late.

2 - Is it now the time to net gooseberry bushes? I have got to grips with the soft fruit I inherited, and I have approximately 7 small gooseberry bushes which are now showing mini-berries, two redcurrants, and a blackcurrant.

    I would say Yes to the first one. some garden centres will have some tomato plants left .   Yes, net the soft fruit now it has been pollinated, to keep the birds off.
    You don't stop doing new things because you get old, you get old because you stop doing new things. <3
