This year I have grown some tomato plants in the ground in the greenhouse, some in big pots sunk into growbags and some in garden soil.
The ones in the garden soil seem to be ripening first. So far they seem to have escaped any diseases. The greenhouse ones, though, do not show any sign of ripening at all.
The varieties I have grown are Sungold, Tigerella, Red Pear, Gardener's Delight and a beefsteak variety.
I had painted the greenhouse with some shading paint in the 'hot' Spring, and wonder if I should clean it off in order to get the tomatoes to ripen, in there.
