but since Id already potted them into the pots the other day I had to find other means of attaching the strings to the pots/ plants as opposed to planting the string under the plant  :unsure:
I use membrane pegs / tent pegs pushed in next to the toms - they're small enough not to damage too many roots, once you start to tie in the plant weight will keep the string tight anyway so it's not really needed.  ;)
nosce te ipsum : I'm the person the monsters under your bed are hiding from.

Thanks Lards, be used the tent peg method for runner beans before now, :) I actually tied some strings around the edge of the pots, some to the actual stem of the plant & some through holes that we made in the pot rim for this purpose some years ago (plastic flower buckets from supermarkets).

Watered and tied in the toms.  The left hand side of the GH which I think ::) are the sungold  are just forming their first trusses and needed side shooting,  nothing yet on the right hand side toms. The cukes are very much sulking across the gable end, they appear healthy enough just slow to grow.

Watered and fed the toms, everything appears to be fine but other than the lettuce you'd be hard pressed to tell anything was actually growing.  ::)

Watered and side shooted the toms, the lettuce is growing well but everything else is about as enthusiastic to grow as I am about doing my tax return  ::)
