What are the best vegetables to grow inside. Have had success with various chilli varieties in the past as well as herbs and will be growing them again this year, but I was wondering what else you all think Is worth a try. We have large south facing floor to ceiling windows and I am prepared to put some hours in to growing things. Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

You could try tomatoes??-anything that would be suitable for greenhouse growing?-though even with a big window the light is not the best

You could try tender stuff like tomatoes, sweet peppers and aubergines to go along with your chillies but they'll need careful watering and feeding and you'll have to watch out for beasties and maybe help with pollinating.

Lots and lots of salad crops - leaves, radish, spring onions - yum. I do all of these on my windowsills along with herbs (rosemary, basil, mint, coriander and thyme) . I'm going to give garlic a go this year.

We've currently got first early potatoes on the go in the conservatory  (OH reckons to get the earliest spuds in the village!) and after those it will be tomatoes

I've sown some sweet peppers and am going to try growing some in the conservatory.  Can it get too hot for peppers?  Have got some shading material (old net curtain) - don't want to leave windows open wide if I'm out

I'd go for lots of different salad crops too as they wouldn't take up too much space and you could probably have a near enough all year supply.
