Episode 5 of The Wartime Kitchen and Garden is all about tomatoes – growing a good crop and preserving it.
Dr Wieger Wamelink and his team have shown that plants can grow, flower and fruit on simulated Moon and Mars soils.
What’s a gardener to do when the weather outside is frightful, but it’s time to sow some seeds?
In Gardeners off World this week, learn about a planned space greenhouse, Martian beans, a new space station and liftoff for space cannabis.
The space tomatoes are doing well, but drinking a lot of water. Ryan came up with a low-tech way to keep them watered while we were away.
If there’s a starting gun for the growing season, then it fires at the beginning of March.
