now is a good time to plant bulbs like daffs and tulips. If you plant paperwhites you can have them blooming by christmas!

Um Gardening Express are you here to be part of GoY or to promote your site?

Alf you certainly do not need to use a greenhouse to start of bulbs! Either plant them in the garden or in pots... What are you interested in plant wise? Lots of plants will survive overwinter outside.
In your greenhouse you could start to grow sweet peas and broad beans both of which would be transplanted out next year.

Welcome Standish Moongrower is right bulbs outside, seeds, cuttings and over wintering plants in your greenhouse. Dont paperwhites get top heavy and fall over? lots of other narcissi too choose from.

Paperwhite daffs. really are only for indoors and yes they invariably get top heavy and have to be tied up. Love the scent but gave up on them as they look so untidy...
