I've decided to leave an 8' section of the polytunnel and stone/gravel it. I'll be leaving shelves there and a chair along with my herbs and strawberries in multiplanters. I have one REALLY big container a mature tree came in and I fancy sticking it in the corner and growing something different in it. Maybe a dwarf fruit tree or something would suit, I want something that's going to last for years.

Any suggestions?

If it was me I'd try grape ..... it would be interesting to see if it takes. when i was young my fathers friend had fantastic grapes growing in his greenhouse he had trained them up the back & along the roof Smile

If growing grapes the plant needs to be planted outside and trained in they do not do well inside as the are very hungry plants
