What to start this time of year!!
« on: March 01, 2007, 20:00 »
Living up in the grim North (Carlisle) I was wondering if there's anything I can start to grow this time of year that won't die with the frost. Any tips would be appreciated!!

A whiskey, depends on which country your in mate  :lol: , being only 90ish miles further down the road you can get many things going if either put in the greenhouse or under cloches, but to be honest I would be patient and wait for spring, nothing worse than lovingly careing for the crop and have wiped out. I have Little gems on the go almost ready for transplanting under cover along with some beetroot, garlic needs a bit of a cold spell to split so get some of that in.

Absolutely Aidy, thought I'd see if a greenhouse was available  :shock: .  Glad to hear that your Little Gems are in good shape  :wink:   Reckon you are already too late for garlic to be splitting but single cloves are fine for cooking or re-planting in Sep/Oct.

Thanks for that. I've got a greenhouse but being quite new to it all, wasn't sure what to start off this time of year!!
