You could check how much a parcel firm charges to send the polytunnel. If it's a reasonable rate get it sent from a friend in the UK?

Glad you don't live there now Nanny Beach, I've always loved dogs but couldn't have one during a big part of my working live because we both worked and I would never have a dog that had to be left on its own for too long. Now that my partner doesn't work we got ourselves a BC, always had them when I was growing up. She's certainly keeping us on our toes but I like to think we're responsible owners and she is great with people and other dogs. 

Now that she is 12 months we have started to increase her amount of exercise. Still not too much jumping etc but plenty of longer walks. My better half loves teaching her new tricks to keep her stimulated. My only problem now is the look she gives me when I leave for work😊. But the waggy tail when I get home takes away all the stress of the day.

I would call the Council, they will send out a pest control officer to dispose of it for you. I wouldn't try tackling it yourself Zoomer.

Be aware that with the cheap ones the cover will only last a couple of years before they need replacing. Some are better than others but they all deteriorate.

Personally I would save up for a small greenhouse or look out for a second hand one.

Hi Nanny Beach, yes it's a lovely room, not ours though😊, my better half took this picture at the holiday cottage we stayed at last week in the Brecon's. While there we had daily visits from the owners dog a huge Great Dane cross, soft as a brush and a waggy tail that could knock you off your feet😆.

Hi Logan, how about Merlin, here is a picture of a 'Merlin' with our young BC Floss. He belongs to the owners of the holiday cottage we stayed at recently.

Can I dig in manure in winter and then lightly lime in spring

This may help Aym280. Basically it helps to neutralise acid soils.
