Can I grow tomatoes in winter?

How can we grow tomatoes in winter?


The only way to grow tomatoes in winter is in a glasshouse or tunnel house.

Because of the lack of sunshine hours in winter, they do take a bit longer to ripen. If you grow the tomatoes in a large pot, a sunny conservatory would be suitable.
