Tomatoes don't need light to ripen, if the leaves are healthy leave them alone they're the engine of the plant.

 I can vouch that they're worth the wait. We've had half a dozen so far( like everything on my plot it's early this year), can't beat the sweetness straight from the garden to the plate.

Best Base for Greenhouse?

Posted: 08/08/2017 at 18:10

Personally I would always use some type of base in order to ensure that the area is level, it is very difficult to do this on a lawn or bare earth. I use paving slabs laid using a dry mix. The frames are fixed to the slabs.
