You may not have a greenhouse but you can still provide warmth and protection to crops such as tomatoes, aubergines, peppers and cucumbers. Joyce Russell shows you how

It can be hard to ripen a good crop of tomatoes outdoors. A hot summer helps, but there can still be a cold late spring before the good weather arrives and in some areas the sunny growing season just isn’t long enough. The secret is to provide some shelter and to boost temperatures so plants can make the most of whatever the summer brings.

This grow station provides a perfect sheltered environment. It performs really well and provides a good way to grow tender crops for those that don’t have a greenhouse or the ideal growing conditions. You don’t even need to have a garden — this frame will fit against a heat- retaining wall in a yard. Provided there is some shelter and plenty of sun, you can indulge your gardening aspirations and grow plenty of tasty tomatoes. Make more than one frame and try growing peppers, aubergines or cucumbers in their own protected growing space.
