I have tomatoes, a few types of chilly plants and bell pepperplants still in the poly tunnel since last season. All the leaves have gone off them and they really don't look the best. Crying or Very sad
What I'm wondering is will these come back from the dead Smile when it warms up a bit or will I have to grow them all from seed again this year.

All of these plants are annuals,so you have to sow from seed every year. Give the whole tunnel a really good clean,to get rid of any disease spores, using a jeyes fluid solution (don't get any on the soil!), and maybe a sulphur candle.

You could start sowing peppers and tomato over the next few weeks indoors. They need to be kept at about 15-20 degrees celcius. Pot on when the roots fill the pot, Plant them out mid April. Good Luck!
