which greenhouse

Posted: 17/04/2014 at 22:20
Hi everyone, I'm thinking of buying a small greenhouse, the one with the shelves inside (that actually looks like a cupboard). I would have loved a bigger one, but I'm pinched on space. I looked around online, but there are so many options it's mind boggling! Can anyone please give me some suggestions on what to buy? Any input wound be most appreciated!

Thanks Dovefromabove, I'll read the link, but keep them inside My precious you know, the beetroots and carrots that i had left outside in the hail survived  But you were right, the tomatoes and aubergines didnt make it, so i sowed them inside this time and have a lot of little plants on the window sill

Hi everyone, I have chilli seedlings which I germinated indoors, but now that it is a bit warmer, I was wondering if I should move them outside? I live in Essex and the temperature is around 12C. Can anyone help me out? Any feedback will be appreciated

Yes, finally
I've got chillies and tomatoes, even the carrots...the beetroot seedlings survived the frost like Dovefromabove's just the aubergines, they still haven't germinated, even on the window sill

Thank you Eva!
I'm so glad to have so many people to help me get started, before this I had no idea what a propagator even was
Now that I'm armed with information, thanks to everyone on this forum, I'm confident that I won't kill my seedlings this time around....I even have a few on my window sill which have germinated in the last couple if days!yay!
