Winter in an unheated Glasshouse – creating some colour – 

If you have on and the thousands of unheated Glasshouse in the UK and wondered what you could do with them in the winter months then planting a few stock plants will provide you with some scented cut flowers for your home in the late winter early spring. Easy to grow and very hard its not a plant that is as common over resent years but well worth a try. Its best purchased as plugs or grown from seed on a window sill and then transferred to a pot or bed in your greenhouse. For extra protection you can planting them under bell jars or small cloches just to get them started. 

Other plants for the cold greenhouse which will produce early colour are spring bulbs in pots, primula and violas.
