Hi All,

I am going to be replacing the planting structure i have in the greenhouse in october once all the crops are out and the last 2 years once i have cleared the greenhouse in october nothings is grown till april the following year.

(greenhouse does have a small heater but i try not to use it)

So other than salad crops what can i put into greenhouse over these months?

I am wondering if carrots would grow or onions? I did try carrots but they went to seed and were tiny :(

I bought some Cucumber seed - Merlin variety and have a healthy plant growing in the greenhouse. However it is only about 2 foot high and doesn't seem to want to continue up the netting I have set up for it although it does produce cucumbers at the nodes.
Have I bought a variety that is smaller than usual?
The seed companies that sell it don't give any information about the height or suggest it is anything other than a standard climbing variety.

After 10 years of raspberries Ive decided to remove the canes as the fruits are increasingly bland, and it is a bit of a bugger to keep them weed free as they weren't planted in neat rows. I want to replace them with blackberries which I much prefer and would like to know if I should be doing anything particular to the soil and when the best time to plant them would be. Many thanks for all the comments

A friend of mine had her niece come to stay with her.  She opted to help with the watering and my friend told her not to use the red watering can as it had weedkiller (Sodium Chlorate) in it.  You can guess what happened.....   My friends tomato plants and cucumbers which she grew in the soil in her greenhouse, have all died. 

Does anyone know how long it would be before my friend can grow things in the soil that has been contaminated please?  If she sprayed the area with a hose for several weeks, would this make the ground safe for her plants next Spring? 

My friend is so upset as her tomato plants were over 6ft tall and had lots of large tomatoes on them.   I only have a few weedy ones left as I have planted up the best of them.  I can give her some fruit for her own use when mine ripen but she wanted to put her surplus on the table in our village where donations left go to Cancer Research.
