With a First Tunnels Polytunnel, your harvest steps up a gear as the rest of the garden winds down for autumn & winter.
Autumn is Coming
August – High summer in the garden and time to sit back relax and admire the fruits of your labours. With flower borders billowing and kitchen gardens at their productive best, a years worth of sowing and hoeing all becomes worthwhile. The trouble is green-fingered types aren’t ones to sit in the garden for long. Gardeners are already thumbing through next season’s seed catalogues and planning their plots for 2014 and beyond. We know that autumn is just around the corner and the season will soon be coming to an end. It’s hard to imagine that the first frosts could be upon us in weeks!
Extended Growing Seasons
For millions of gardeners, harvest soon heralds the end of the gardening year. But there is an exception to the rule: A Polytunnel extends the growing season right into winter. Even in October, productive Polytunnel gardeners will be harvesting: –
- spring onion
- strawberries and tomatoes
- And more
The extended harvest doesn’t stop when the clocks go back. Many of these popular fruit and veg will still yield crops in November undercover. And instead of watching fireworks, Polytunnel gardeners are busy sowing new crops – broad beans, cabbage, coriander and garlic, for example. Not bad, when you consider that our climate is far from Mediterranean.
