My polytunnel is almost a year old and in need of a good spring-clean. Any tips on the best way to give it a wash? Thanks! Pen
Pen...use lukewarm water and washing up liquid. Use one of those soft brushes for cleaning cars, or any soft brush/sponge will do. If you need to clean the outside, get a sheet and tie a rope to both ends, soak the sheet and get one more person and pull the ropes back and forth over the top of the tunnel!
I plant 1 row of each veggie,so as not to have gluts. Then when row is harvested , sow another. When summer veggies have been harvested have winter growing seedlings ready to put in. Don't forget to rotate your crops though! I was picking tomatoes last year well into Oct/Nov.! You can plant low veggies under the toms,like lettuce,radish,onions too.
