planting in the greenhouse


In a couple weeks, I'm going to plant my tomatoes in the greenhouse.
They are now inside, in a non-heated room.
I live in Belgium, so the temperature is +/- the same as southern England.

What should I do before I plant them in the greenhouse?
Do I have to harden them like when you plant them outside?
I'm a bit puzzled on what to do next.

Your greenhouse should be just about like a room in your house with a south window. Light is entering only through the glass or plastic. UV light should not be burning the leaves. There should be no chilling temperatures or strong winds.

If you are putting the tomato plants directly into a dirt floor, that should be fine. I've done that. I can move a bench out of the way during the summer. More recently, I've planted basil in there.
