Our first plants in the polytunnel

The first 300 plug plants have been moved from my greenhouse at home into the polytunnel.  The plants are two species of hardy geranium and I have grown them at quite low temperatures to ensure that they will cope if the tunnel does go below freezing. They only cover one very small corner of the floor and look completely lost, even though I have created a bubble-wrap tented area to cut down the space I need to heat. Its really great to finally be inside but it feels like moving into your first house before you have managed to buy any furniture.  Still, its another important landmark.
