Great thanks, just had a Google and northern polytunnels look good for fruit cages and you can add on.

Think this combined with a smaller cold frame may be the way forwards.

Do you get any problems with mice/rabbits eating through the netting or are they not that determined?

The moles have only just appeared after 2 years living here - and to be fair I don't really mind sharing with them and will just take the gamble.

When you say fruit cage, is this a known product or something you would build yourself?

Apologies if I ask dumb questions.

Thanks all for the advice.

Any polytunnels to recommend? Would these need digging in to stop rabbits?

Ideally I would like to grow tomatoes, raspberrys, peas, purple broccoli and sprouts

Hi I need some advice, I have a large garden that is mainly level before sloping down a hill to a lower flat which is then open to farmland. As a result I get rabbits, field mice and moles and basically having got the main part of the garden finished last summer I now want to focus on the hill and flat, mainly to grow fruit and veg. Due to animals mentioned I thought I would need a greenhouse on the bottom flat, however I would like guidance on this to see if there are any cheaper alternatives. My other concern is we get battered by wind in the winter and my budget isn't large enough to get a rhino greenhouse. I saw a Europa manor greenhouse with toughened glass but not sure if this would be suitable? Any advice would be really appreciated.

What can I Sow now in my raised bed?

Hi I have harvested much of what was in my raised bed and only my parsnips remain. Been really good for my first year of planting veg but now I have a big space with nothing in it. Therefore does anyone have any ideas of what I can now sow in my raised bed which will take me into the winter months? Any specific varietys? Really fancied putting in some sprouts but realise I'm too late in the day for this year. Thanks in advance.

Thanks for the tips, will sow some more. It said on the pack they could go in at back end of Feb, I did have fleece on until recently. I am up north and we have had a lot of wet weather so maybe that's had an effect?

Hi It's been 92 days since my beetroot (Detroit variety) were sewn, therefore decided to pull one up to see if they were ready. However there was nothing, just some thin roots from the leaves. So disappointed as I thought they were coming along nicely. Can anyone tell me what may have happened?

Early onward peas

Hi I sowed some early onward pea seeds at the back end of February and the plants have grown well to date. However I have noticed that the leaves have a white tint, it isn't a powder but literally a colour change from green to white. I suspect it might have been the weather but would appreciate any help. The plants are still growing so have no reason to doubt that they will soon form pods.
