  16. The information given is wonderful but what would the better season for tomatoes because soon I want to agreen house

    • Sow your tomato seeds in March or April, approximately 6-8 weeks before the final frost of the winter, or earlier if you’re growing your tomatoes in a greenhouse.

  17. Mine is about 50% seedlings / propagation and 50% things I’m growing in there (also the UK):

    . Tomatoes (this is the bulk of the space) – I will also grow some outside but they are still in the greenhouse at the moment (it’s really full!)

    . Chillies

    . Peppers

    . Cucumbers (you can grow some varieties outside but they do like a greenhouse)

    . Early carrots – these are just about ready now which is good as I need the space to grow on the peppers.

    Rest of the room is taken by various seedlings / things that I’m desperately behind on planting out.

    My greenhouse supplies my allotment though so I need to start a lot of stuff in there. Getting a touch late to start tomatoes from seed. Far too late for chillies from seed so buy some plants if you want to grow them.
