    Hi,

    We moved to Somerset earlier this year and the garden consists of mostly grass, horsetail in the hedges and a few mature trees. I've built some raised beds for veg & fruit over the summer, and installed a 35ft*14ft polytunnel to extend the growing season. My interest is growing fruit & veg, the other half is more into flowers etc.

      Thanks for the welcomes.

      Will try to take some photos of inside the PT - have some salad crops, herbs, pak choi, peas (for early crop next spring), strawberries and starting to play around with DIY/cheap aquaponics.

      I've visited Charles Dowding's garden a few times and am planning to go "no dig" - had three dumpy bags of compost/soil conditioner delivered this week.
