any ideas out there?I have the fabric but when looking for pegs i realise the ground is pretty hard as it had paving over before, and i dont think i will get the pegs,neither plastic or metal into the ground! i have a plastic cloche there new and cannot get the pins for that into the ground.Any ideas for keeping the fabric down so i can shingle on top and create my kitchen garden?  sarah

There are heavy duty pegs out there that you can buy which are stronger than the standard (tent pegs) that you can buy.

I got these for mine - about 15p each if you buy 100, but I don't know whether you need that many:


Nice and strong and do what they say.

I've put it under bark & gravel & in each case the weight of those was all that pinned it down as such. I taped the joins. So unless it's very slopey in which case your shingle may have problems anyway, you may not need to peg it down as such.
