    Happy New Year everyone! - well it is the first post in this thread in 2017 .

    Here's a view of mine:

    View from the greenhouse door 2017-plants.jpg

    On the left- the 'pimped up' mini wooden greenhouse with tube heater, auto vent opener and wireless thermometer so I can rescue the plants if needed, home to three chillies and some dahlias and cuttings of Chilean guava:

    On the right, my self-reinforced blowaway growbag growhouse with tube heaters, housing a Jalapeno, and cherry tomato seedlings, sweet peppers, ground cherry and cape goosberry seedlings, with a strawberry plant along for the ride:

    They get about 4 hours of sun at the moment, from midday onwards and are all trickling along, but this should get a lot better once the suns gets a little bit higher and clears the house that's blocking it from around 4PM as the sun drops.

    The chillies were under grow lights until the start of this month, so they're carrying on regardless.

    I can't be the only one who's coaxing plants along at this time of year?

    Rocket, coriander and parsley have overwintered successfully in the greenhouse and have been growing fast enough this month for me to start taking pickings

    Gradually clearing out last years chillies, looking safe to say they haven't overwintered!

    Put this years chilli seedlings out in the greenhouse for the first time this morning, and back in the house this evening. That will be a daily routine for the next few weeks.
