Greenhouse Update - 20cm cucumber in May!

A scorching 27C in the Greenhouse today, but we were greeted by this huge cucumber and blooming marvellous flowers! The cucumber plants have been very happy in the Vivigrow Planter over the last few months, and have grown to around 4ft tall! When they start to get this tall, our Gardening Angels use Roller Hooks to train the stems around a Frame, which makes it easy to harvest fruit and means huge plants don’t take over our greenhouse!

A stripy summer number!

Our Sungold tomatoes have ripened, but we are looking forward to seeing the Tigerella tomatoes turn red! The Tigerella tomatoes have already started to develop stripes and have been thriving in the Solar Quadrow since they were planted up last month after the seeds were sown in January – a bit more sunshine and these should be ready to harvest very soon!
