    Have you fed and watered them regularly? If they were outside in 2012 perhaps the rain washed away all the fertiliser.

    Dordogne and Norfolk
  • Make sure the roots have plenty of room i.e. big pots!

    It sounds like they're not getting enough light or warmth, but we really need a little more information. When are they planted out? What's the usual water/feed situation? Where are they planted and in what?
  • i usually have plants from my uncle who gives me gardeners delight and beefeater varieties. i water them in the evenings when  needed, every day when large enough and feed them every 3 days.  should i close the door at night , every night even when warm ie , july ?

    I have no idea what you are doing wrong-gardeners delight are a cherry variety anyway so will not get that big -but bigger than a peaimage

    And beefsteak are big tomatoesimage

    I wonder if it is too much food and water-being treated too well?image

    There is something wrong somewhere- it could be the plants-are they grown from saved seed do you know?image
