    In my unheated and (soon to be addressed!) drafty greehouse, I have some spring cabbages in buckets and some knobbly bright green objects that are growing tiny curly sprouts - like piggy tails!. My OH was given them by a Madeiran friend, who said they were called "pipinellas". I'd post a photo but the OH has planted them in pots. Anyone ever heard of them?

    Tunnel and greenhouse contain :-

    Olive tree (keeping it out of the worst of the weather)
    Lots of winter salads
    Overwintering beetroot (for the leaves)
    Spring onions
    Some 'spare' tulips in the soil
    Various perennials grown from seed last year in the soil - I thought they'd be better than in small pots over winter
    Collection of plastic bottles for keeping slugs off
    Various pots of bulbs/lilies

    But that's cheating really....what have I done for this season? Only a few broadies and some root cuttings of primula denticulata

    Any chance of people going back and modifying their posts, saying if your greenhouse is heated or not and to what degree ()
    Because I see things being grown here and I think, blimey, my unheated greenhouse has been down to -7 over the last few weeks.

    Please ignore everything I say, I make it up as I go along, not only do I generally not believe what I write, I never remember it either.
