Peppers can be grown from 4 to 6 to a large growbag, while try 3 Aubergine plants to a large growbag. The growbag should be placed on the staging, if you have it, at the back of the greenhouse. To ensure fertilisation of Pepper and Aubergine flowers, gently shake the flowers with your finger to distribute the pollen. For cultivation of Peppers, go to Peppers, and for Aubergines go to Aubergines.
Cucumbers and melons can be grown in grow bags or large pots placed on the floor, and the plants allowed to clamber up netting, cords or canes, attached to the rafters. For cultivation details, go to Cucumber or Melon .
Grapes vines should be planted in the soil, with their roots outside the greenhouse, so that they do not need to be watered. The vines themselves should be trained inside, up to and along a wire hung about 30 cm from the rafters. The wire should be positioned so that the hanging bunches of grapes are out of the way of your head. They should be pruned in the Winter, while they are dormant, as they can “bleed” very badly if they are pruned while the sap is rising. You can “pinch” out the new soft growth in the Summer quite safely, but the harder older growth must only be pruned while the vine is dormant. For cultivation details, see Grape .
Feeding of Greenhouse Plants. This is best achieved by using a proprietary liquid tomato fertilizer, diluted in water.
