Quick update, finally got round to getting the two tier growhouse for the balcony:
I've moved my tomatoes, strawberries, rosemary, chives and parsley outside. I hope they won't get 'shock' from being transported to colder temps outside (will be around 7 -10 degrees this week at night). I'm puzzled how they can get enough sunlight as the greenhouse, is green? Surely it should be clear?
The mint I have split into two pots about a week ago, left one outside and here's the result:
The other pot, I've left indoors by the windowsill:
For some reason this plant has been growing better than the one outside? *puzzled* I hope the one outside isn't suffering from shock?
I repotted our tomatoes in a bigger pot (pic below) - there's no overcrowding of the roots but it's gone all floppy (stalk and leaves) - we will get some sticks to support it but is it ok?
I am to find some French/African Marigolds this week to put with the plants which will act as a pest deterrent too! Almost there!!
Thanks again for all your advice so far!
