We’re very excited about our new First Tunnels polytunnel. It has a starring role in our new videos and photos which will be on the website in a few weeks.
This is in addition to our visitor greenhouse and our trials polytunnel in Mawdesley and our outdoor plots at the offices. Our new polytunnel gives us more space for trialling products, developing ideas for new products and training new team members.
We’ve even popped a couple of stripey chairs so that we can sit down whilst considering our product trial results.
The fabulously handy manufacturing folk levelled the ground and laid 4 tonnes of gravel to prepare the way for the First Tunnels team to come along and construct the polytunnel.
Inevitably the heavens opened and it poured it down over the weekend ahead of the construction and when the First Tunnels guys arrived the ground was sodden, that didn't put the brave souls off though, the hob nobs may have helped.
