This is what happens when.....

I took the advise of some young gardener in AG mag to set tomato seeds in January, my dad there sniggering away, 'Thats the way to do it these days dad' I says!

'Go on then' Says he.

Well, now my plants are 9/10" tall, no way they can go into the unheated greenhouse, and thinking never in the garden.

i will probably have to pot them on yet again, and so have to house 10 x 6" flower pots in the conservatory.

I have learned my lesson, listen to the oldies, they know best, dad has been gardening in this garden for 26 years, who was I to think I knew best.

OK Geoff, you win on this one!

    The plants look fab! But I have to say I definitely think people get wiser as they get older, I had a similar story with my Grandadimage

    And so they should be Calendula, I wonder what happened to the ones they chappy in the AG mag sowed.

    They would be beautiful plants if it was a month later!

    I feel I will be planting these out with at best the flowers on, or at worse, the baby toms.

    I wasn't in a rush to get started though, my seeds are only just going in , in fact lots haven't gone in yet, I just went by the magazine, I expect he has got unheated greenhouse to plant then in. Fortunately, I have Ferline and Shirley just coming up.
