Hi murfinthecountry, I am new to polytunnels but recently did a course and was told the following suitable. Winter purslane and other winter lettuces, Nove onwards early carrots, spring lettuce, cauliflower, sugar peas, spinach, cabbage and early spuds. Hope this helps this is my plan for the winter so if you have any other suggestions please let me know

Newish to this poly life also. had a good start with radish, parsley, toms, potatoes etc. Now ready to put in beetroot & carrots. In fact a chap in the garden centre said that loosley, seeds which are due to be planted outdoors in spring are suitable more or less for a poly in autumn. Now that gives a lot of choice.
