It wont be here for another two weeks. Is it to late to plant things like, peppers tomatoes, aubergines?

(can you tell I'm new at this lark?)

We have decided to grow our own as we spend so much on veg and salad stuff.

Can i grow soft fruit as well?

It is a 6x6 greenhouse so fairly big.

No greenhouse is big enough. I bet Monty Don used to say 'i wish we'd added another 100000 sq feet to this one' at Berryfields.

Not too late, buy plants from the garden centre. Do you have a concrete or solid base or ground you can grow into? If it's ground you will need to dig it over and pick out all the weeds and improve the soil. I still grow in bottomless pots with New Horizon PEat Free Growbag compost in them on top of the bare ground - and bark chips round the pots to keep the weeds down.

No point in putting soft fruit in the greenhouse except forcing strawberries in January for early in the season. They just go in the ground outside.
