I gave my Greenhouse a good clean out the other day - bought a gro-bag and planted up 3 Tom. plants - "Moneymaker". I've now been told I've planted them too early but according to last year's diary I planted them around this time. It's a cold Greenhouse by the way and up to now they are looking fine. Anyone else planted theirs?

We've got our Tumbling Tom hanging baskets in the greenhouse waiting to go out later. OH wraps fleece round them at night just in case of low temps. Cuc plants the same, they had to move out of the kitchen window, getting to big. Chilli plants still pride of place on back bedroom windowsil! x

Haven't done my hanging basket yet - that's next on the list. I've got some fleece so thanks for reminding me to have it ready as I suppose there's still time for a frost.

I think you should be OK with the tommies in a greenhouse Dottie, the frost should not get to them. I'm keeping mine in the potting shed, by the window, until mid May. They have a thing here in this part of France that it is very probable to get a hard frost up to mid May (and sometimes later). Happy gardening and eating the fruits of your labours xx

I planted my seedlings into the grow bags in the greenhouse at the weekend so I'm hoping they will be ok too. Who knows? We could have a heatwave or snow!

We planted 5 out about 5 weeks ago, then it rain & rain so dug them up re potted them and put them on the window sil. Put them back in the ground yesterday as they didn't look to good.

A guy at the local market is selling plants they must be about 70cm tall, he tell everyone to keep them in the greenhouse.

we don't have a green house

because of moving - i haven;t grown my own tom plants this year - but i shall be getting my "youngsters" from the garden centre in the next week or so - and i shall keep unver my cloche thingys for a another week or 2 before i plant out in a pot - and as you know i am southcoast of england - am despertely in need og being able to get in garden - so i can plant my runner beans - they are at least 18 inches tall....but its so damned wet and soggy and boggy i can;t dig over the area i want themto grow i yet...

I shall also buy in a chillie plant - as i miss having my chillies in the freezer. then next year it will be all pistons away for seeds again - greenhouse less too - so window sills will be well used lol.

I've just heard that we are going to have a hard frost at the weekend here in Lincolnshire with the possibility of snow. Oh dear, that wont do my garden any good. I will have to try and cover my little plants, poor things.

Last year I grew what the garden centre were calling Turbo plants and so was very apprehensive and wondered if they would be any better than what I normally grow (worth the additional cost?). But they just took off and were very successful. Lots of fruits and a great flavour. Also, unlike some years, they didn't have thick skins.

So yesterday I bought four plants for the greenhouse and I swear that they have grown already! This year they are being more 'honest' and calling them grafted plants. I think perhaps some people didn't buy them last year because they didn't understand what they were. Perhaps some thought they were genetically modified.
