    The Tomato Growing Thread 2019

    I think that is too cold for tomatoes, I keep my greenhouse at 5C and even that is too cold. Their leaves go purple and it can take them weeks to recover from the shock.

    Vegetable Growing 2019

    24 days in and the cucumber has outgrown the propagator lid. Currently debating whether to keep it in there, as it is heated, but with the lid off - or to keep it indoors for the time being.

    5 days on from grafting and they are getting a bit of light and air now. Reducing the humidity from 98% down to 80%. One graft looks to have failed:

    Fruit tree rootstocks

    I've seen how a Devon apple grower does that, cutting off above ground level and mounding soil around the new shoots so they send out roots into it.

    Onions? which way??

    Unless you’re looking at growing large onions, I see no reason why you couldn’t sow them after your move. Pretty sure I’ve sown at the beginning of March in the past, and produced decent sized onions.
