Polytunnel filling up - April 2012

This is how this seasons stock looks in our new polytunnel. It has plenty more space for us to expand as the business develops but now most of this years crop is assembled and ready to begin deliveries. Its really great to see and to imagine what the place will look like when full. So far we are growing 24 different plant types which is plenty to ensure continuous flowering and bee-food supply. We only stock plants that we have tested and have witnessed the bees will go to. So I now need to get the new trial beds into action so we can add to the range.
