• Better By the Pound

    5th October 2015In The GreenhouseStephanie Donaldson

    The greenhouse tomatoes are coming to an end – but what an end with four giant Brandywines. I’ve just picked one to take to a friend and it weighs in at just over a pound. My best ever crop of this delicious variety. This year I planted direct into the greenhouse border rather than into grow bags and I think that’s why they did so well. Next year I would like to do this again, but rather than replace all the soil I’m going to add several bags of GroChar compost as the biochar should keep the plants disease free. Fingers crossed. brandywine tomato with 50p as a scale
