Flowers to early on tomatoes

They should be fine, I'm guessing the flowers will mature as the plant grows, just let nature do its thing

Tomatoes in a cold GH

Posted: 03/05/2015 at 11:45

My tomatoes have been perfect in my greenhouse Though if the temperature was due below 5c I covered them in fleece.

It got down to 1.4c one night last week and they werent affected with fleece over the top of them

10-15L pots work much better than growbags, I still cant understand growbags, they are way too shallow.

I would wait until the foliage has completely died back, then take out the bulbs and store them somewhere cool and dark until Autumn.

That way you get full use from the container. Little early to be planting out new bedding anyway
