      I'm holding off for a few weeks as my main prop is in an outbuilding with west facing windows. Last year I was fighting against leggy seedlings due to lack of light

          I'm trying to resist till midMarch when I'm going to sow a couple of early varieties. And then main ones will be down in the end of March to avoid constinuous runs later: day-greenshouse, night-inside :)

              Does anyone know the variety of tomatoes that the supermarkets sell? Are they just golf balls painted red? :biggrin:

              Do you mean those orangey red ones from Spain?:biggrin:
              Mostly grown hydroponically under glass so bound to be tasteless.
