Hello Ray

People do have polytunnels and have  great success with them.  Friend of mine lets her field out and it has a polytunnel.  No issue with rats

However, if unsure, what about a greenhouse?

Sure you will get plenty of advice on here

Good Evening FORKERS

Evening everyone.

Is the dahlia itself,stll,ok fidgetbones.  2 dahlias ...out of sight so out of mind,....we're eaten right to the ground last week.  However, it's prob the best time of the year,for,it to happen.  Growth is so vigorous now that,they are sending up,loads,of new shoots.  Hopefully you can save the that dahlia

Still think two posts....evening and nice.  

Its been lovely here today......beautiful evening.  Staking helps make a sturdy upright tidy plant then at about 7' or more high.  

Eaten healthy salad with carrots, Beetroot, lettuce, peas and spring onions from my garden.  Then topped off with strawberries, cream,and ice cream.  Oh! I am a tweedy so and so............but it was so good so don't care

I think mayI have done a similar thread before......simply cannot remember. It just struck me last week how intriguing the names are of the posters now amd felt it nice to ask the question.

Fidgetbones ......a bit of a Cornish guy then?  Know those places so well.  So, you,think I am JC then Fairygirl?   

When I first joined the forum I used my real name Christopher.  Then I was "trolled".....just as Brumbull was few months back (hey, come back Brum. Your wit is badly missed).  Someone used my name and made it difficult for me to continue. But, like a bad penny, I came back.  Verdun is a family name with a nice story behind it.

Lindsay, they like moist, semi shade, good soil and room to grow.  Mine do get plenty of sun too but they are in areas of good deep soil.  I tend to grow them with my the hellebores go over the astrantias are growing.  They like similar comditions
