    New member here and fairly new interest in gardening, having previously put plants in the ground where I'm told to.

    I built a polytunnel earlier this year to grow a bit of veg and tropical plants and to over winter our tender tropicals.

    Currently have a tropical area, an arid area and working on a second arid area, along with re-working a cottage border to be more arid as it is free draining and south facing so want to work with it rather than battling with watering.

    Growing a few seeds for a bit of fun (palms, pineapple guava etc) and some to plant out (musa, brugmansias, ginger etc)

    Will post more pics and questions later. Heres the inside of the tunnel (assuming I uploaded it properly) - I know, I need to fill it up !

    Scratch that …. I cant yet add links will add some when I reach the requirements.

        Thanks for the welcome. The garden is very much a work in progress. And there should be plenty of questions

                    If you don't have success in that tunnel .......rent it out! It's bigger than a lot of houses around here :love30::imphrt:

                    Seriously though, welcome. Ask away, there's lots of knowledge here and everyone started somewhere, be it a small patch, allotment or poly tunnel :spinning:
