Tatties planted this morning, bright and breezy here but quite warm.

My cute daff's are going over but the tulips are making up for it! Noted I don't have any white daff's but along the bypass they are in their prime! In the garden notebook for next year! (My notebook is just scribbles, but I do wander through the pages but no use for when sowed or harvest weight)! ;)

Been busy in the greenhouse, added some manure where the tomatoes will be growing and then added the grow rings and cane supports, you can also see the French strawberries in the pots.

I have also grown some peas in root trainers and have planted those inside the greenhouse to try and get an earlier crop, no idea if they will pollinate or not.

Things are slowly growing and with overnight temperatures rising I hope I can get some tender plants growing in here soon, saw our first House Martin flying over the garden, so I hope that is a good sign.

All looks very productive tiger. Doesn,t it lift the spirits to see that sunshine beaming in though the glass ?
Surprising how nature goes on cheering despite all the chaos going on around us.
Feel very sorry for those ŵho can,t escape out into the little patch which is their garden or allotment and focus on doing something g positive and productive

A few experiments going on in there, carrots and peas growing on the right, hoping for an earlier crop, the radish on the left seem to be all tops and no fruit, you can't win them all.

Potted on some ridge cucumbers and butternut squashes from modules into bigger pots, getting low on multi purpose compost now, but most stuff will go into the greenhouse borders for their next move, so should be ok.

I've been moving plants about and this struck me as something that could be of interest. All the tomato seeds were sown on the same day, on the left are some "spares" still in their modules(they will end up in pots) in the middle is one that was potted on, then after a few days put in the greenhouse, inside the small plastic grow house. The one on the right has been in the double glazed conservatory with no low temperatures. It was potted on in the same compost on the same day as the one in the middle. Just shows how growing conditions can have quite a dramatic effect on plants.

What a difference Tigeburnie, as you say, it's not until you see them side by side, that you realise quite how much...very interesting.

Tiger - that,s an interesting comparison with your tomato plants.
I can,t help noticing the difference between mine sown and being reared on my lounge windowsill in pots and some self sown seedlings that which have started to appear in my veg plot which are about one inch high! I suspect, despite warm daytime temperatures we,ve experienced during the past week, low nighttime temperatures have a very negative effect.

Out of interest, Tigerburnie, would you say that the conservatory plant is stronger as well as larger? I raised quite a few of my tender seeds/seedlings inside in similar conditions to a conservatory but felt that even with good light they were stretching out a lot and would go floppy if left there much longer. Although heat is less in the greenhouse, they've all gone a much deeper green from the higher light levels (except where they got scorched at the tips :() and seem sturdier, though more compact. It's really good to see a side by side comparison.

The ones in the conservatory are romping away and are now needing support rather than being floppy.
