The greenhouse is busy in spring. My potatoes were ready to start chitting, so they are all in there. I have Pentland Javelin, Charlotte, Cara and Sante.
We can only grow late and carrot fly resistant carrots here, so this year I decided to try growing some early carrots in the greenhouse. I picked a deep tub to give the roots plenty of space. An experiment for 2020.
I had some leftover free trial beetroot seed - Subeto. It germinated very poorly outdoors so I decided to try it indoors in order to get a better (and earlier) crop. My hope is to spread the cropping over a longer period. I also sowed some radish.
The broad beans have germinated 100% in their toilet rolls and the violas I showed in autumn from collected seed are also doing well. I hope to have some early flowers.
In November I started some dwarf iris in the greenhouse, bringing them into the house a few weeks ago. They are starting to flower now and look to go on for a few weeks so well worth the effort!
