It's great fun isn't it? I used to spend weekends shopping and pottering aimlessly. Now I can't wait to grow stuff! Lots of trial and error. I hope you have lots of success bunnysgarden. Got a favourite plant yet?

Thanks sooooo much for the advice folks.

I am warned bunnysgarden! Am still a novice and can't hold my water - I'd be out there now if it wasn't for an early start for work tomorrow!

Thanks sotongeoff. I'll hold fire and perhaps just buy some seeds for now. Heck, I planted some kohl rabi seeds and they are up too! Luckily there are lots of seeds in the packet so enough to take-two when it is warmer.

Good question Tractorboy - I'd love to know the answer too. Also, is it ok to put manure in greenhouse beds?

Hello folks, may I ask what else other than tomatoes and cucumbers is good to grow in a greenhouse? It's my first year as a proud owner of one. Can I grow onions and garlic in them? Thanking you for any tips!

Hello, yes I agree. Lovely to get sowing isn't it? May I ask your opinion though pls? I planted some tomato seeds last week and they are up already. I had them in a utility room. It has a window put not mega bright. They looked like they were stretching for light so I put them in the greenhouse.....but it's not heated and I'm worried that the little seedlings might freeze. Is it best to bring them back in especially with the cold weather coming? Or do you think they'll be ok in the greenhouse?
