New to greenhouse growing
« on: December 29, 2012, 16:55 »
Hi. I bought a greenhouse last year but did not realy make much progress with it. It is 8x6, but i think i had too many plants inside. I was told you cant grow tomatoes and chillies together. Can anyone recomend what i should try, i would like to grow as many different variaties as possible. Thanks.

I grow tomatoes, peppers, chillis and cucumbers - all in the same greenhouse  :blink:

I agree with mumofstig I get 9 tomatoes 3 chilli (apache) 2 Cues (marketmore) 3 sweet peppers (Mohawk) and 3 aubergine (moneymaker) in my 8'X6' greenhouse

i am switching to a smaller aubergine (pinstripe) to give me a bit more room

hope this helps

I've always grown tomatoes and chillies together   :).  Tomatoes always do better for me though, as chillies need such a long growing period, and I'm always a bit late for sowing.  So plan well in advance is my advice!  :)

And make sure you allow for the full size of each plant too.

Wheoever said tomatoes and chillis shouldn't be grown together has an unusual perspective imho  :lol:

Bet you are glad you asked the question ;)
