Help please. Hubby has constructed fab polytunnel for me. Unfortunate time of year for a novice planter to get started. Would very much appreciate any tips or suggestions to help me get up and running. Thanks in advance. Helen



Hi Whitebridge and welcome to GoY. Are you looking to grow flowers or veg. in the polytunnel? If veg. take a look at my last blog which advises you what you ca nsow and grow in September.

and welcome fro me too.
If you are into flowers then now is a good time to take soft wood cuttings. I have also lifted and separated some spring flowering perennials. They too would be happy in your poly tunnel. As the autun gets colder it will be ideal for over wintering those tender non frost hardy perennials such as Fuchsia.

Thank you so much girls. I am totally new to this game but very excited about the prospect. I want to grow veg and flowers. The 1st year will be trial and error. Thank you for your tips to date. Will put your recommendations into practice.
Regards to both of you from Helen.
