Hello, ollieoc.
Good to see a new forumite, welcome to our happy bunch. I hope you get all the help you need - I don't have a polytunnel so I can't help you there. I'm sure others will have good advice though.

Hello Ollieoc, welcome. You might want to start going through the polytunnel thread on the home page, any amount of old posts there with loads of info. Resurrect a few and revive them.
I would have thought that the first tomatoe to redden would be the one nearest the main stem. You picked a bad year to start your hobby, most of my veg is a no show this year.
