i have planted tomatoes 1 and a half months ago and they are 25cm tall how should care for in winter indoors

11/10/2013 at 15:29

Hi Hamza, it's probably a bit too late to grow tomatoes now but keep them indoors and see what happens.  You might have to grow some more from seed next year, start them off in late March/April and they'll have plenty of time to grow, flower and you should get some tomatoes.  Let us know how you get on

Hello Hamza, I'm afraid, as the saying goes, "I wouldn't have started from here".

Tomatoes cannot survive the slightest amount of frost. The plants will die if they are left anywhere that gets very cold overnight, even if you keep them warm during the day. The seeds are usually sown in the early spring in a warm place and the pla ts grow and flower and produce fruit over the course of the summer. They will stop fruiting in the autumn and are normally pulled up and composted by now.

Hi Hamza, as Mrs Beehaven & waterbutts have said it isn't the time to grow tomatoes, wish it was, don't think my husband would like tomatoes in conservatory and heating on all winter I wouldn't mind..well the heating on bit.

Keep reading / adding to the Forum and when Spring comes we'll all be taking about sewing tomatoes and lots of other stuff

My toms are just finishing Hamza but as the others are saying, keep posting and looking and you'll get all the info you need in late winter/spring for getting toms and other things under way 

KEF - I find sewing toms tricky....the needle gets stuck in them...

Hi Hamza - do you want to grow hyacinths indoors or outside? 

11/10/2013 at 23:08

indoor and outdoors

12/10/2013 at 00:15

Just looked in on this thread

Hiya hamza.  Looks like you've made a few friends here 

Good time to buy hyacinths now.  Outdoor ones are easy....just plant them where you can walk past so you can smell their fragrance in spring.

Imdoor varieties are bit different.  They have been treated to flower indoors around Christmas time. You can grow them in special bowls and a special bulb compost.  They will help you at,the garden centre or ask us again here.  You need to grow these in the dark for a few weeks.

Hey, hamza.....if you're reading this now, turn off the light and get to sleep..ha ha

can someone please tell me what i can sow now at this time

25/10/2013 at 20:41

Broad beans can be sown now - they will grow slowly through the winter, then in the spring they will grow more quickly, then they will flower - you'll see the bees feeding on the nectar in the sweet-smelling black and white bean flowers, and when they do that they'll pollinate the flowers and you'l soon have a wonderful crop of tasty broad beans.

There's also lots of salad greens that can be sown now - have a look here

Good luck
