great looking PT, i hope to start getting mine in build soon, hope to go approx 20ft wide 50ft long, it is to cover a piece of really stony ground that has a slight angle on it, did try potatoes in the ground to break it up to no avail so PT it is.

just wish i could find some cheap hoops, as money is always tight my end. the cover i know will have to be new,

The poly pics look fab ;D    sadly I have an untimely caterpillar explosion in mine and my greens are not looking too healthy :(
We split ours into raised beds and filled with manure soil and compost logic being that we could replace the top growing level regularly without having to stress too much about crop rotation.......we are on extremely chalky poor ground here.........we also have a couple of areas outside which we rotate for the pigs and grow potatoes beans and leeks on in a pig free year :sunshine:
