    I tend too go for somewhere in the middle on that.
    Maybe drought tolerant, but that doesn't mean you have a good looking plant.
    Equally to wet and the roots might rot.
    I tend to think that they like warmth though.

        Morning @Flumpy can I ask are you growing straight in the pot holder tray and not in pots? Not sure I can see any pots in the photo? If so, how do you find it works compared to pots?
        Thanks.

          Hi Tinkerbelle, yes I’ve put them straight in the tray, I can get them out quite easily, I normally put a plastic bag underneath so as not to loose water, is it better to grow them in small pots? :)

            @Flumpy think I might try that technique at the weekend, thanks for the tip. :)

              I'm very late with sowing this year (tomatoes are the only ones done on time). Gonna start today /tomorrow placing pots and trays in the gh.
              With Tiger (ginger kitty) :cat-kittyandsmiley: joining us last year, I can't use windowsills safely.
