New to greenhouse growing.
« on: May 30, 2012, 07:06 »
I have been offered a 8 by 6 glass greenhouse. If I am allowed it on the allotment it would be unheated( no power supply) except for times of real hard frost ( a paraffin heater is available). What could I put in it immediately is it too late for things like melons for this season?
Taken over neglected veg garden at new home. Enemy number 1 Ground Elder. Then there is the furry terror - bunnies - to contend with!
Made a start have beds established but moved in too late for serious planting. We shall see what 2015 brings.

Not too late for the likes of melons, cucumbers, peppers, and even tomatoes, but you would have to beg or buy the plants rather than sow now, especially as you haven't even got the greenhouse yet!
Sow your seeds, plant your plants. What's the difference? A couple of weeks or more when answering possible queries!

One of the best things about being an orang-utan is the fact that you don't lose your good looks as you get older
