Has anyone tried overwintering carrots with a mini polytunnel? I'm dithering whether or not to give it a go and sow some now, any ideas which variety (if any) would be the hardiest? ThanksContinue

Hi Karen,  congratulations on scooping a prize in the competition - I felt sure you would win with your physalis photo as it's just beautiful. Your work is really amazing and your win was well deserved.

Welcome to Gardening For Wildflife.

Do let us know what visits your garden. Do you grow anything especially to attract wildlife?

Thank you Andrew. Apart from growing lots of wildflowers for pollinators, I do my very best to attract butterflies too, a real passion of mine. Lots of pond life in our garden too, frogs, toads and newts and we have water voles visiting! Mason bees have taken residence in bug boxes at my allotment. I'm sure I will enjoy the group.
