 Hi I have grown these from seed, do you think I am early yet to put in a no heat greenhouse, or could I put fleece over them in the greenhouse or keep them on the window ledge a bit longer, thanks.

    Keep them warm , you'll get better results later.

    Yes I thought that, as I have only a plastic greenhouse, so can't have no heat. This the first year I have managed to grow  good seedlings,  it was a flop  last year. So thought I would try inside.  On window ledge.

    I put the tomato plants in the greenhouse during the day and bring them indoors at night. They bulk up quite nicely.

    The plastic growhouses don't offer much protection compared with proper greenhouses , so I'd keep them as they are for a bit longer Pondman. Once you move them into the next size pot, they should be ready to get hardened off a bit by putting out there.

    It does depend on your own climactic conditions though - the weather can be rough and cold during April and toms need a decent nighttime temperature to thrive image

    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....

    I live in west central Scotland - not where that photo is...

    thanks all of you for the advice, will keep them tucked in house for a bit longer, if we do have some wonderful sunny days ??? will put them in greenhouse or ou side for the tomatoes, but cucumbers inside. never had them grow like that before, amazing.
