Hor­ti­cul­tural aide mem­oire Tend to­ma­toes

Country Life Every Week - - In The Garden - SCD

To­ma­toes are hun­gry and thirsty crea­tures, push­ing them­selves to the top of the list of those need­ing the gar­dener’s daily at­ten­tion. Their first re­quire­ment is plenty of sun­shine, so in­door crops should be grown in un­shaded glasshouses. Plen­ti­ful wa­ter­ing is a daily task, giv­ing the same amount each day to fend off un­wel­come de­vel­op­ments such as blos­som end rot. Feed once the flow­ers ap­pear with a high-potas­sium liq­uid fer­tiliser. For cor­dons, re­move sideshoots as they ap­pear. Keep an eye out for signs of white­fly, spray­ing or in­tro­duc­ing En­car­sia as nec­es­sary. The re­ward for your pa­tient dili­gence will be con­sid­er­able.
