fuchsias still flowering

these cloches are worth so much with the protection they are giving to the plants, alot of protection so far. i will put up some pics tomorrow of the tunnel when i have it sorted out. i am trying to get plastic barrels for next year that i can cut in half and use as raised beds for tomatoes and other veg in the tunnel.

Nice and healthy looking and hopefully it will survive the winter.

They will be glad to be there now the weather is much colder.

One would nearly feel like climbing in there beside them---nearly!

Good idea with the barrels. It'll save a lot of money that you can spend on plants and seeds (the important stuff).

i with you there scrubber, i would fit in quite comfortably too. i couldnt agree with you more jacinta, mind you the budget could put a halt to that. they sure will myrtle, luckily it wasnt to bad in the tunnel plus i had loads of layers on so it wasnt as bad
