Greenhouse action


I thought Id write up the story of my greenhouses.

firstly here’s the action in the north, which is a lean too facing south.

Top Shelf Aquilegia, Lettuce, Delphinium, artichoke, cabbage and leeks

Middle Shelf with backup brassicas etc

good view of second brassicas

Clary Seedlings

Dahlias Bursting to be set free once danger of frost is past

A pot of Early Carrots

Latest news I have increased the minimum temperature to 10C. In the hope that things will keep going in the very cold spell. Especially my v slow tomatos.

Those plants are telling a very happy story.
I envy you the socket, it must be very useful, especially in years like this one when the winter has just gone on and on and on.

yes the socket is usefull.

Last year I used it for my propagator. I am reluctant to use a heater, but with the threat of frost continuing, I have the thermostat at 10C. I need to keep them all in growth.
