Can I now leave my Tomato plants out now ,have been hardening off , in & out of greenhouse for nearly 1 week



They should be safe Pammie, but keep an eye on the forecast. If there was a late, severe frost, you might need a bit of fleece to protect them.

Thanks Sheilabub , it’s such a “ chore “ each day ,will be glad when I can put them in their right place the garden . The 6 plants are looking really strong . I’ve also got 3 in the greenhouse & 3 cucumber plants.

Sounds like you’re doing fine Pammie.

You'll have no problems, temperature overnight is unlikely to get near 5°c in Cambridgeshire now.
Are the cucumbers in pots? They're buggers to transplant into open soil

Drat, already lost 4 cukes this year. They just don't want to grow in the veg patch. Planted the last chance seeds earlier. Then I'll have to grow in pots...
