thanks verdun i grew them fom tubers. i am having a new greenhouse it has in fact been delivered but OH cant put down new base until the toms have finished in the old one, i hadnt considered keeping them in pots over winter would that be better than drying and storing ? or did you mean drying and storing in the greenhouse  i was going to put them in the cellar because i dont heat the greenhouse and OH says they will freeze in the shed
