Hi all

Just got my greenhouse cleaned out and looking to grow some stuff in growbags.

I have 4 growbags at the moment but will get more if needed.

Im looking to grow sweet peppers, carrots, lettuce, onions but not sure what else.

can anybody give me some advice when i can start with these?

Also if anybody has any advice on other things i can grow please tell.

Thanks.

P.S
Can i plant pepper seeds into the growbag and leave them in it without having to transplant them.

hey wayne...how big is your greenhouse? just have a look at my thread (below) ...i started with grow bags but quickly realised a complete overhaul was the best option.

you can sow seeds of peppers directly into bags but better if they are sown in small pots and transplanted when big enough (4-6 inches 10-15 cms)

Carrots you will run into problems with if your trying to grow them in bags. they have a deep root so should really be in the ground.

you are right 56k natas about carrots in grow bags, they prefer to be sown and grown directly into the soil.

Michael

I am going to try to sow carrots directly into the soil. However, I have been warned about carrot fly. Do you net as soon as you sow?

Thanks
