Greenhouse here means any undercover growing method , so windowsills, propagators, cloches etc etc ..

Same principle as the threads in other bits of the Permaculture garden...just tell us what you have been up to recently with seeds and plants under cover of.. well.... covers  What have you done in the greenhouse/polytunnel today? Icon_smile

I've re-potted some small tomato plants.

I've also put in a few cuttings of carnations that I took off some stems that my DW got the other week.

I've realised that I need to ask Mr D to remove his patent icicle protector from the porch roof (i.e. the piece of wood which is wedged onto the polycarbonate to stop the two foot long icicles crashing through it in January). It's cutting out the light which my (potential) seedlings need! ☀

Grr I wrote a long list , and then lost it.

I have done lots in there today. And will do more of the same tomorrow.

Mostly involving sowing seeds and getting them into the heated propogators in the porch.

Or sowing them into the tubes I filled up today ( now have 105 of them , waiting.)

Nuff said.

I don't want to start a new 'what should I have done in the greenhouse today' thread, but I am wishing I had started to save toilet roll middles sooner - I've been in 'winter mode', starting the log burner with them! Mad

I've been out in the greenhouse today and have sown 8 different tyes of tomato, 2 types of peppers and some basil. In the salad bed outside I've sown 2 types of spring onions, baby spinach, radishes, mixed salad leaves and rocket, all nicely snuggled under the mini polytunnel/cloche

Feels great to be out doing stuff again. :cheers:

Hoping for a dry day tomorrow so I can get down to the allotment and make plans for bigger polytunnel

I make my paper pots round the bottom of a bottle, much cheaper than the ready made makers.

I have more that has survived & is growing.

I planted peas in October (in a Pot) & they have flower buds on
The garlic in a pot is about 6ins tall.
Broads that I started in Oct in the greenhouse (in a pot) were put outside & have just about survived.
The salad leaves that I put in (in pot) are pickable
Potted carrots have gone mad.
As you have realised all of mine is in pots!!

I ran an extention lead into the greenhouse, checked deckchair was in working order,
(& coffee mug), & listened to football for 2 hours... Wink

Oh,

I mean I did some planting, transplanting & trimming... Cool

Finally got round to sowing some seeds in the polytunnel Very Happy - brassicas, lettuce, various japanese greens, leeks and spring onions. Will check the weather forecast and then decide whether to start on the tender stuff.

I've sorted out some cuttings off some carnations that my DW brought 2 weeks ago,
I've also potted on some tomatoes and planted some pepper seeds as well as sowing some broadbeans in the raised beds in the garden.
oh and some onions went in yesterday.
