The new polytunnel at Wilkin and Sons has now been finished and is planted for the season ahead. It has been a massive transformation from muddy quagmire only a few months ago to a being fully planted. The growth has been staggering as Chris Newenham explained to Ken Crowther.

In the polytunnel at Fothergill’s seeds more than 150 different varieties of tomatoes are being grown. Whilst the older varieties still prove popular, the newer ones are more disease resistant as Technical manager Tracy Collacott from Mr Fothergill’s seeds explained to Ken Crowther.
