Polytunnel march 2021

preparing the deep beds ready to grow

Each deep bed took 16 wheelbarrows full of topsoil, which Warren dug from the croft. We top-dressed the beds with well-rotted horse manure and compost.

Then waited for the Spring to warm up.

fruit trees and shrubs

We bought several fruit trees and shrubs for the polytunnel, which were in a dormant state. Patio plum tree, which has two varieties grafted onto the root base. Tzar (black plum) and Victoria. There are two blueberry shrubs and a kiwi vine.

preparing the sitting area

We placed a table and chairs at the top of the polytunnel to enjoy a well-earned rest.

A perfect G&T spot too.

I hoped for a wonderful place full of flowers. I was delighted with the outcome at the end of the Spring.
