Re: Gardeners' World Reply #195 – July 19, 2017, 11:43:23 pm I've given up on gardening; last 3 years trying to grow tomatoes have yielded about 2 punnets of fruit. Given that the tending of said plants is done during work time I reckon those tomatoes have likely cost my customers tens if not hundreds of pounds per fruit. I managed to grow one onion and a handful of potatoes in the same period. But last week we had a decorator in and for reasons I don't quite understand one day he gave me a coriander plant. He'd told me the day before and the way he described it I imagined something I was going to need a machete to get under control. What turned up was a pot with a sad looking inch high sprout. I stuck it in the corner of the garden; intending to bin it once he had gone and feelings did not need to be spared. I've tried to grow coriander before and it was even less successful than my attempts at onions.But I saw it today and it's grown to two feet high. I'm thinking I should leave it alone as it's best chances don't involve my gardening skills.
