Polytunnel advice

Posted: 26/04/2017 at 13:24

Hi i have recently got a polytunnel, just ine of those green plastic ones & i made a bed and planted up healthy tomatoe plants, opened my vents as advised but they keep dying? I have taken the plot on as a half plot on an allotment, i have no idea what was in the bed before as the old sod ( believe me he is!) who had to give it up won't tell me? He is just waiting for me to fail & go away i think? Which i have no intention of doing, so any advice regards growing in a polytunnel would be apprrciated thanks

Thanks everyone for Advice, I have a Buddleia I brought with me, that I grew from a wild cutting, luckily in the corner of the yard there is a cammelia as yet to flower? As I rent it will all have to be in pots, whatever I plant some lovely bulbs of Daffidils & tulips come through at the Moment to enjoy

Thankyou Tetley, we did try to get Army Cadets in to help but, Hebden Bridge have been hogging them lol! It has been ALOT worse for them, some of the shops may never re open? I hope & pray for a decent summer ahead for all of us to dry out a bit, I have asked CRT for extra help & other groups are banding together, to help out so, real Yorkshire grit is all around
