in Fruit & veg
I'm fairly inexperienced to growing veg, and I fear that in my haste and lack of checking the weather, I may have sown too early amongst the frost/colder temps and wonder if I should re-sow more now...
In small pots in my greenhouse, I planted courgettes, cucumber, leeks and tomatoes... from seeds. This was 2.5 weeks ago. So far I have 1 courgette that has come up, out of 10 pots, 3 cucumber, the leeks seem fine, and no tomatoes. We did have a few frosty mornings last week... Would this have been a problem for them? They were up on a bench, but I'm worried about the cold...
Additionally, my potatoes and onions also went in 2.5 weeks ago, but i grow in bags, and they stayed outside for a few frosts before I moved them indoors..
My question is, as my courgettes/cucumbers/tomatoes haven't come along at all since planting, when I had no issues last year, should i look to re-sow some more this weekend if I can get seeds / the ones in the greenhouse seem okay? or is it likely they're okay and just need more time, due to the cold weather? I could even grow in my conservatory for a few weeks whilst it's warmer?
Thank you so much, that's what I thought! Some have come along, but due to the number that hadn't, I'll move them all in tonight and see what happens within the next week!
