Polytunnel Growing

We got the polytunnel last year from First Tunnels.  Can’t fault their service or their product.  If we were to buy again I would definitely go back to them.  Our main reason for buying a polytunnel was the blinking blight that we got pretty much every year. Our potatoes are fine as a rule but the tomatoes get devastated, the year before the polytunnel we only got about 10% of the crop and that was mostly what we grew at home.  Much debating went on, but finally the decision was made and the poly tunnel was purchased.

We had a fantastic summer growing in there, learned a lot.  Mostly do not plant so much because they really do grow better in there!  Didn’t plant much out over the winter, partly lack of organisation as we had a lot going on at the time of sowing the new plantings and partly because it was hard to imagine ever having space in there again.

However today is a good polytunnel day, look what I found and there are quite a few.  We may get our very own first strawberyy by the end of April!  If for no other reason, I would highly recommend a polytunnel.
