We grow tomatoes, chillis and cucumber in our greenhouse, thought its mostly chillis. We start off our chillis from seed now in modules in a propagator and when they get a few pairs of leaves, we pot them up. My OH grows them in a heated greenhouse then until the good weather comes and then just waters twice a day and feeds them with something called Chilli Focus. Its the summer heat that gets the plants to flower (if you don't have them get some of those auto opening things that you attach to your greenhouse windows in the roof), and leave the door open on nice days and the bees and insects will pollinate the chillis for you, or you can pollinate the flowers yourself with a cotton bud. I grow a variety of cucumber called crystal lemon which look like orange sized yellow melons. They are very tasty and prolific. We grow all this in pots, not planted into the ground in the greenhouse.
