Most of the aubergine,pepper and chilli seeds have germinated  I must sort the next lot of seeds out for sowing

Hi lilylouise, wow your greenhouse setup sounds fabulous! Lucky you for winning one! Do you end up with a lot of lovely produce? Has your largest one got beds inside? Do you change the soil very often or can you get by with adding nutrients and feed to it? Hope you don't mind all the questions.

Hope you've warmed up bunnysgarden. It was an exotic -4 where I live!

Hello Tootles - all my greenhouses have a path with gravel each side so I don't actually plant into the border.I do usually get a lovely harvest  Pam LL x

Good Afternoon
I have been having a catchup,too
Done some food shopping this morning - my sister is still poorly with the virus thingy- cough,cough,cough is wearing her out so she won,t be shopping tomorrow - I will get some of it for her.
Went for some more compost and also bought 4 pots of Verbena bonariensis
I was going in the greenhouse which does have the heater on but don't even feel like going down the garden at the moment
I use mainly pots and half trays for sowing seeds-depends on the size of the seeds and also how many I am sowing
The peppers,chillies and aubergine s I sowed a few days ago are germinating well
Keep warm everyone

Morning everyone

I had an email from the local NGS organiser about the new show - I think it would be a lot of pressure so won't be asking for an application form

What can I grow in a greenhouse...

Posted: 19/02/2013 at 10:07
Hello Tootles I am lucky that I have 3 greenhouses- one was inherited from my Aunt,another I won in a competition and the largest one we bought secondhand
You will so enjoy yourself this year-I absolutely love my greenhouses - I grow tomatoes,peppers,chillies,aubergine ,cucumbers and 7 or 8 kinds of Basil's in the largest greenhouse,pot plants e.g begonias,streptocarpus,gloxinias,Archimedes etc. in what I call the new greenhouse(even though it is a few years old now) and anything left over goes in Aunties greenhouse along with some summer bulbs e.g polianthes tuberosa ,hymenocallis and bressera
I hope you have a very successful year
