Gardening, Greenhouses

Gill’s Greenhouse


My name is Gill and I work for Primrose customer service and I am passionate about gardening. I have, over the last couple of years, started growing vegetables. I love my greenhouse as I can sow seed much earlier than outside in the veggie patch and so have a much longer growing season.

I am about to purchase a new greenhouse this year as I really need a larger one now. Last year I grew so many tomatoes, peppers and chillies that I ran out of space.

Now that the weather seems to be warming up, I thought it was time to sow my tomato and chilli seeds. I sowed six pots of different varieties at the weekend and have them in the greenhouse in a propagator. I keep the greenhouse heated at night with a paraffin heater. I also sowed lettuce and rocket which I will plant out in the greenhouse border .
