aubergines

Posted: Yesterday at 16:42

I am growing aubergines in pots in my greenhouse. Will they sprawl or be a bush or should I stake them?

Can I put them in a pot outside then? How large does the pot need to be and how tall do they grow?

I can't pot them on yet as don't have enough room for them - I always find it difficult to start plants off - once they're off, it's too warm in the house and too cold in the greenhouse.

Can I grow my courgettes in a greenhouse? After I put them in individual pots, what care should I give them?

I've sowed passandra. Some advice says remove all laterals on all-female varieties. Others say leave the laterals to grow. What is best?

I have germinated tomato, cucumber and zinnia on sunny windowsills but now they are getting leggy and have their first true leaves. Can I move them into my cold greenhouse, the temperature of which drops to 3-4 degrees at night?

Advice needed please

Sarcococca hookeriana var.digyna sounds like a good one - what do you think?

Thanks for that.

.... and I didn't realise there were small evergreen clematis - forsteri Joe looks beautiful!

Chaenomeles might be a possibility. Some varieties I've seen seem a bit bare on leaves. Is there a variety which is quite lush and very hardy?

Thanks

A rusty old red heavy-duty scooter - I was never allowed a bike so this was the nearest I got!
