Poly tunnel planting

I went this morning with the intention of planting more gladiolus. I actually ended up planting things in the poly tunnel.

Aunty tish has shared some sweet potatoes. So these are the very things ever to be planted in the poly tunnel.

There was also some aubergines and sweet peppers sat in a box.

They were looking a bit sad, but reasonably sized.

And have now been sunk directly into the ground. We have black beauty, dancer, diamond and tres hative de barbentane aubergines. As well as California wonder sweet pepper and Nigel the outdoor chilli. Have been watered in, and around the base I have put sand and the little blue pellets of doom. All of which were then covered with fleece.

There is hot patio sizzle, hot thai, and pretty purple in pots still in another transparent box. These are heavily slug damaged at the moment; and I’m going to wait til they get a bit more leafier again.
