Sorry if this is the wrong forum, please move if so.
This year is the first year I tried gardening. I’ve had mixed results:
a) I planted two tomato plants in the same bed about 18 inches apart. One plant is bursting with tomatoes, while the other does not have any. What’s strange is that the plant without tomatoes looks really healthy and is growing like mad. What is the likely issue?
b) I planted an herb garden that has withered and died. It was in a spot where it gets full sun starting at noon until about 6. It was doing well, but we were out of town for a few days during a 100+ heat wave and when we came back it was gone. I mean it was burnt to a crisp and dead.
I had planted dill, basil, sage, mint, and cilantro?
c) How do I know when to plant herbs and things like tomatoes? I live in Washington, DC. Is there a good website for when to plant what?
Thanks for any and all advice.
