Speaking of which you folks have reminded me I have a quantity of those felt type grow bags in my shed along with associated water trays. It is time to start summer seeds here in about a week. I think I will dig them out and use them this year to see how roots fair in our summer heat.Brassicas are unlikely to grow well in growbags used conventionally, because they need a lot of support from the soil. You would probably get away with spinach and radishes, and, if you cut them in half across-ways and turn them on their sides to get extra depth, you may get a cabbage, which may, or may not heart.
Not a great idea, to be honest.
Your fellow Americans would be better at advising on local tomato and pepper cultivars, but they do well, as do aubergines (eggplants) and cucumbers.
What zone are you in lori that you started hot peppers? I'm told around March 1st here and I'm in 5b.
Even at "full size" the fruiting is so laboriously slow to maturity that pepperheads know to start early. The maturation might be enhanced with certain phytohormones but just getting the peppers on the plant early allows picking 30-45 days ahead. The fellow had to repot because he was new at the game. Just start out like the plant was larger and do less work as a result.Should I be starting peppers early than march 1st in 5b? I was told that date by a guy who sells at the local farmers market. Said he started in February last year and never again. He had to keep repotting them into bigger containers. By the time he planted plants outside mid may they were almost full size already.

I am saying since it is artificial, and thats temps and not just a grow light, you can please yourself to the extent you have room to do so. I do not grow that many peppers, it is just Becky and I, so starting a few early is no big footprint for me. There is no right "date" in an artificial grow environment. There will be some transplant shock but you can help that with rooting compounds. For me, having edible peppers early is the goal. I am not planting them for looks so I start peppers and Tomatoes this week.So your saying you'd start ahead of that? My average last frost date is may 15th here. When should I be starting them?
i'm in zone 6a (last frost may 1st ish)So your saying you'd start ahead of that? My average last frost date is may 15th here. When should I be starting them?
I heard that bigger tomatoes tend to take longer, your growing season might not be hot enough for long enough for it to really start producing alot.Last year I grey jalapeño peppers, cayenne peppers, and bloody butcher tomato in a grow bag. Peppers did pretty good and bloody butcher did average probably. Was just wondering if there's better varieties to grown in pots other than cherries? Not a big cherry fan and don't plant any.
