Autumn in the polytunnel is a time for planting for the winter and hungry gap, as well as for harvesting melons and other autumnal treats.
With every plant in the tunnel bursting with vitality and raring to go, the polytunnel gardener is much in demand.
Being able to grow under cover is crucial in any plot. But which is right for you – growing under plastic, or under glass?
Of all the seasons, spring is when the benefits of the polytunnel will be most obvious. Inside the tunnel it already feels like summer.
Over winter, your tunnel will become coated with algae. It’s vital that the cover is cleaned in spring to let in as much light as possible.
