A quick update for those who saw my destroyed greenhouse after one of the winter storms. The insurance company have sent a cheque to replace it and I'm going for another polytunnel. I am so excited.

    thanks KEF. I had my doubts, but they've coughed up the full amount.

    How big was it, Hostafan.?

     I bought one for £80 last weekend from the garden centre.  The assembly took less than 2 hours.

    I have a 56ft x 21ft tunnel already ( can be seen in original photo ) so I'm going to have another tunnel, but poly all the way down. Then I'll have a hot tunnel and a cool tunnel.

    I reckon once I've paid the builders for the groundwork, I'll have enough for 21ft x 48ft.

    Thats a big polytunnel. It puts my baby to shame.

    the piles at the background are woodchip a local tree surgeon brings me. I just called the first one I saw advertised, and he brings me anything he can't sell. Win / win for both of us. Try it, you never know your luck.

    fidgetbones, that tunnel on the left is bigger than my last garden. I do realise I'm very lucky.
