new to growing thought i would start with toms. i have some red peppers to can i grow them together can anyone advice thanks mags



do you mean in the same grow bag? I dont think it would be a good idea as the tom will grow a lot bigger. if you are putting them in the ground/separate gb, as near neighbours the dont see a problem. just watch out for shading etc.

yes i was going to put them together in same growing bag but i won t do that now thanks for advice. i have just bought one of those litte plastic greenhouses to see if i get into it if i do i will get aproper one next year. as i have bought a red pepper plant and i cant put it with the toms will it be safe to grow outside or in my concervatory

better in a conservatory unless you are down south. make sure you 'anchor' your greenhouse down as they can blow over quite easily and then your efforts will be wasted.
