    Default What's in your Winter Greenhouse/Polytunnel?

    I've just sown some seeds in the GH beds, always in hope at this time of year.

    What are you growing or have you cleared out until spring?

    Nothing yet! I've not even cleared out the tomato plants from the summer. There are no more tomatoes in there, but I've barely been out there the last month or so.

    I am planting peas in the tomato bags though, and will sprinkle salad seeds around them.

    I use my conservatory, and right now my sweet potatoes are still in full leaf, and blocking most of the light. I'll probably cut those down in early December.
    I'll start bringing the tender stuff in around then, too, like my citruses, amaryllises, and my hibiscus. I've got a pot of loose-leaf lettuce to come in at some point, too.

    One half of my polytunnel is planted with Spring greens that I sowed in August... they’ll stay there until March/April/May. The other half has tomato plants that are finished, but I haven’t had time to clear away yet. I’ll probably just leave that side empty once it’s cleared.
    He-Pep!

    Scarlet kale, pak choi, komatsuna and giant winter spinach in pots. Lettuce and spring onions in troughs. Two blueberries I've not got round to planting out. The gooseberries, blackcurrant and pyracantha from Aldi. Lots of strawberry runners in small pots. A young bay laurel to keep it warm.

    The rest is pollinator friendly flower seedlings/small plants for overwintering - black ball cornflower, echium blue bedder, creeping thyme, thrift, echinops, sea holly, foxgloves, aubrieta, alyssum saxatilis, salvia nemorosa, nigella, geranium phaeum, musk mallow, hyssop and veronica spicata.

    I’ve still got most of my chilli plants in the minigreenhouse,I haven’t got the space indoors, I’m in denial about them coming to an end!
    I’ve also almost got some broad bean plants on the go. Once they’ve germinated they will have to brave outdoors under some fleece.Then it is a winter rest for the mini-greenhouse

    I’ve got some lettuce, spring onions, beetroot, peas, radish, then I have in modules for planting out in January cabbage, & onions. I need to sow some cauliflower and sprouts seeds plus some more onion seed, I bought some Spanish ones recently when I was in Fuerteventura on holidays.

    Greenhouse number 1. I have just finished emptying ready to plant new potatoes in the border early next year.

    Greenhouse number 2. Still got some pepper plants in the soil, but they are coming out on my nex visit. I'll be putting early potatoes in border here too.

    Greenhouse number 3. I've moved the lemon tree back inside here. The grapevine hasn't lost all it's leaves yet.

    Greenhouse number 4. Another grapevine still alive in here. My onions, shallots and garlic is also stored under the staging. I'll be putting some Winter lettuce in here.
