So, this is the small forest of tom plants currently occupying the south-facing windowsill in my kids' room...
On the whole, I'm reasonably happy so far. Some leginess, which I always get as the light levels aren't brilliant, but once I bury them deeply into bigger pots they seem to recover fine. Ultimately I'm going to have to throw away about half so can keep the strongest. I reckon they range from 15-25cm in height.
What are people's views on when these are ready to go into my coldframe to harden off? It's not practical for me with work to have them outside and then bring them in at night but I'll probably just have them in the coldframe with the lid open during the day and then hopefully remember to close it at night.
Maybe another week indoors, a week in the coldframe then into final pots/positions?Thanks all!
