Good morning

Relatively new to greenhouse gardening and have just installed a new greenhouse. I have transferred aubergines, tomatoes and peppers form my smaller cramped greenhouse in to there but when they are finished can anyone advise me if there are any vegetables that I can successfully start to grow in there to grow though the autumn, winter? I planted some salad leaves last weekend and they have come up already. All ideas gratefully received.Many thanks

    Will the plants be in the earth or in pots on staging?

    They will be in pots or grow bags. Thanks

    I have learnt not to plant too closely. I had a great tendency to plant tomatoes and watch them grow to the roof, become entangled,impossible to pick fruit, water and tend.i created ideal conditions for all manner of pests.

    This year grew just 10 plants of different varieties, 2 pots to a tray with gravel, best year yet.

    Never have any room for growing in winter, too many over wintering tender plants.

    Try some winter lettuce - Arctic King and Winter Density are two varieties that will grow happily in a cold greenhouse over the winter.
    Gardening is cheaper than therapy, and you get tomatoes.
