One of the more useful uses of petroleum is to make polytunnels! The advantages they brings to organic growing are substantial for those of us living in a temperate climate.
In March I spoke with Hans Wieland, Training and Marketing Manager at The Organic Centre in Co. Leitrim. Hans is both passionate and knowledgeable about polytunnels. In this show, Hans shares what we can do with polytunnels to enhance our organic growing capabilities, what design features we should look out for, and how to use them to best effect – from watering to soil amendment to aeration.
In this show recorded on 31st March 2017, I chat with Hans Wieland, Training and Marketing Manager, at The Organic Centre about Growing Organically in a Polytunnel. Warning – you are likely to go out and buy a polytunnel if you listen to this show 🙂
