This is a bumper episode, all about greenhouses and seed sowing. I cover why gardeners love having a greenhouse, how to decide whether or not to heat yours, how to sow seeds and what to do with excess seeds, and what you could be doing in your greenhouse throughout the year.
If you’re new to seed sowing then you may also like episode 5; episode 11 is all about caring for the resulting seedlings. I gave a tour around my greenhouse, the Grow Dome, in episode 49, and if you’re interested in getting the most out of an unheated greenhouse over winter then you should really check out my recent review of Eliot Coleman’s latest book – The Winter Harvest Handbook.
