Popped into poundland at the weekend to see what gardening goodies they had, i ended up picking up a couple of these polytunnels.
they are 1.5m x 45cm x 45cm and cost…..you guessed it £1.
I was suprised at how sturdy they were for the money so im currently giving them a trial at warming the soil up before i plant my cabbage and broccoli seedlings in it.
They also had a some other cool stuff like 6m of irrigation hose for £1 … basically a little flat hose with lots of holes in that you put in your veg (or flower) beds and then when you want to water them just connect your hose too and turn on the tap.
I considered getting some and running it from my water butt, unfortuantley i couldnt figure out a way of traversing the path with the hose so decided against it.
anwyay here are a couple of pics of the poly tunnel….not particularly well erected but gives you a good idea of what its like.
