Hi All,

I'm new here and its my first post. I'm looking for something new or different for my polytunnel. I have way to many veg and herbs and would be interested in getting something a little different. Just wondering if you had any ideas?

Thanks,

Sťa

Try more exotic veg?

Get some cuttings somewhere of different shrubs and grow those?

Grow Agaves?

..... or even a grape vine that, given time, could go from end to end on a wire. If you've ever been to Hampton Court Palace, you'll probably know what I mean but don't forget, they're best planted OUTSIDE the tunnel/greenhouse and the vine then trained into the inside. The benefit would be that it wouldn't take up any space on the ground.

Thanks lads, I like the sound of a lasagna tree, I could plant it next to my money tree Smile

Maybe a vine, that could be a good idea.
I'll deffo grow a few cuttings.

I'm gonna grow some ginger I think, not sure how well that will grow or if I will get a good harvest.

thanks,

Sťa

Welcome. I grew several varieties of peppers and chillies for the first time last year and was very pleased with the results. So I grew them again this year.
