When is it safe to plant tomatoes.
My tom plants are now quite big. is it ok to put them in a unheated greenhouse.Will they be damaged if there is a frost or would they only be damaged if outside where frost could form on them.



If you have grown them indoors then I would harden them off first before leaving them out in the Put them in the greenhouse in the morning and then bring them back indoors at night for about a couple of weeks.

I would have thought you could have them out in the greenhouse all the time now... mind you ours are piddly little things

I started mine off in the but was worried about bringing them out of the warmth of the house into the relative cold of an unheated GH over night?
