Winter greenhouse?
« on: September 09, 2009, 08:20:30 am »
So guys.  Any ideas as to anything I can grow in the green house over the winter when the toms and peppers etc have gone? Don't really want it to be unused in this time and we don't really have anything that needs over wintering in it.

Many thanks as ever. hfw.

I've sown some lettuce, herbs and spring onions. I'm not very good at winter sowing - always gets lost in the harvest rush, so this is my first year. Salad leaves look good, though.
