Chantal, could you utilise some wicker screens or if you are making a big compost area like mine, make an extra "bay" for your lulu which would solve the transparancy issue and save the transport of your liquid gold as you would only need to chuck it into the next bay. :D

Hi Grock Mrs P here. I wondered where you had got to lately. So sorry to hear about your uncle, but you must not feel guilty for enjoying yourself. In this life you have to grab and make the most of any niceties that come your way, and isn't it just sod's law that you're needed more than ever only w...

Hi Catbud, there are no stupid questions but plenty of daft answers. With things like lettuce you can harvest whenever you think its big enough.

Polytunnel shading

In an effort to provide some shade in our new tunnel , Tigger suggested growing cape gooseberries on wires over the tomatoes, aubergines and peppers. Could this idea be adapted to use cucumber plants to trail over rather than cape gooseberries. Height isnt a problem as the tunnel is 9` high but is o...
