Southsea greenhouse

Have your say

The community garden by Canoe Lake now has a fabulous polytunnel, delivered in kit form ready for self-assembly.

This gives us additional growing space to bring on plants from seed and protection for more tender specimens and a sheltered venue for the forthcoming gardening Skillshops.

The construction of the tunnel was interesting. The women did the backbreaking trenching and the men wrestled with the framework, referring to the instructions as a last resort.

Thankfully the struts had been installed in the correct order. It’s a good job someone was paying attention at school as Pythagoras’s Theorem was employed to get the base square.
