  • I have been into growing my own veg for a while and would be most grateful if you can advise me on where to grow certain vegtables in my Polytunnel. I got my Polytunnel from and have the 4.5M version. Does it matter where the Veg is planted and grows at a different pace as the sun goes around the garden and polytunnel different times of the day. I have a South Facing Garden and would appreciate your help. By the way I have the best courgettes at the moment.

  • Hey there, I am growing caulis and cabbages for the first time ever in pots in my garden. Caulis are just starting to form curds, they were lovely and white to begin with, but are now turning yellow!! Is this to be expected? The peg idea is great too!!
  • Hi Sue the reason your caulis are going yellow is the sun, if you use pegs to keep some leaves covering the curd this will stop it turning any further. Its also good for autumn/winter plants as is gives some degree of protection from frost.
  • hey ther is six plots on my allotment in northwood kirkby nr liverpool three are used three never get used becouse the girls that run the allotment dont use them but they dont tell the council i think they could be run by sume one else? carnt they
