I'll do that as well next year. I've got the cues and toms in growpots which may explain why they've done so well. Plenty of fruit on the trusses as well, but none ripe yet...any green ones I'll turn into chutney later on - Robthomvic":qeqy5cmh said:Good advice from Chas and Graham. Be aware though that pinching the growing point out encourages growth of sideshoots and you don't want those!
For an un-heated greenhouse in your part of the country I suggest that in future you stop the growth at 6 trusses and/or 5ft tall max - any more and your first tomatos will ripen later and the last ones have little chance of ripening at all before the winter. Up here in the midlands I find 4 trusses and 4ft tall max works well. I have occasionally got decent fruit on a fifth truss but usually they are only good enough for chutney.
You surprise me Phil. I'm in the same area and have been picking beans and freezing them for the last ten days - I get at least a couple of meals worth each morning. Also had to pickle and make chutney of the beetroot because of the amount. Must admit the tomatoes aren't as good this year but I put that down to being gifted the plants and not knowing what variity they are or waht to expect.treeturner123":1h2luuhu said:My veg is clearly well behind, 1 tom with 1 truss and a few flowers on the beans but no sign of anything worth eating yet!!
At this rate, I might have some by Xmas unless we have some more snow this year!
