Homemade Cloches

Posted: 07/02/2016 at 11:01

Last year I made netted, for the 3m x 1.5m for the veg beds from timber frame with water pipe fixed in,  netting over the top - no bird damage great,

This year I am going to cover one cloche in poly tunnel plastic.  I have seen polythene tunnels advertised with quite big holes punched into the polythene. Why is this Should I do the same?

Also with the high winds we are experiencing how am I going to stop it blowing away ?

If you are only a mile from Ratts I could collect prior to Oxburgh so we don't have to sit in the car with it all the way there and back.

Ah the old raffle prize roundabout. 

I have to agree, its naff. Orange.  But if there are no takers I know someone who probably would enjoy it.

Please dont change your dates for me, as I could always get a lift to Stowmarket Station and I can check out buses.

Hello, I was looking back at an old potato thread DFA advising me not to nick beach sand and saw this snow drop walk.  Is it open still? Could I come.

 Also there is or used to be a snowdrop area in Dunwich which was lovely.   Unless its dropped into the sea.
