With the winter drawing in it also brings with it the creepy crawlies such a spiders, also the cobwebs that they leave behind. We have heard that Chestnuts (conkers) can deter the spiders from coming in to houses or greenhouses if left in doorways and window sills so we set about putting them in our display glasshouse as the amount of spiders and cobwebs that have formed in them were amazing. 4 weeks ago we wrapped some chestnuts up in netting and attached them to the glasshouse roof. I went over to the display area this morning and in this particular glasshouse there is not a spider or cobweb in sight.
So for us it seems to be working there will be no more getting a face full of cobwebs when walking into the glasshouses.
With the time passing so fast and only 7 weeks until Christmas why not get someone a voucher, this can be used towards the purchase of a polytunnel or glasshouse and if the already have one then maybe they can choose from the wide selection of accessories. Indoor growing seems to be the only way forward with the dreadful weather that we have been having and our Budget and Garden Polytunnels suit each individuals needs to make growing all year round more pleasurable.
Yet another cold and wet wintery morning. Time to keep the polytunnel warm. You can use bubble wrap, crop protection fleece, and heaters to help with preventing the frost from biting. Also you can make mini cloches to cover anything that is still growing. But remember to ventilate your tunnel and let the moisture out. If you are looking for any of the above frost protectors please contact us on 057 91 20424.
It’s that time of year again when the evenings get dark early and the growing slows down. Before the weather gets colder it would be a good time for sprucing up the tunnel, if your tunnel has algee or is dirty give a gentle clean (washing up liquid and a soft cloth will do the trick). By cleaning your tunnel it will let you make the most of the daylight avalible during the winter period.
If you have a tears, mend them with repair tape so that the wind will not be able to catch them and make them worse. We have a great repair tape which is €26 including postage it comes with cold shock which makes it’s very durable with the weather changing from warm to cold suddenly.
Also avalible we have bubble wrap, heaters and fleece to help protect your plants from the frost. Please give us a ring if you need any advice or if you are looking for a tunnel to get ready for next spring. 057 91 20424

It’s hard to believe that with the rotten summer that we have just that Autumn is just around the corner and we have to start thinking about bringing our plants in and protecting them from the Autumn/Winter. It’s also a good time to make sure that you stock up on your fleece to cover your plants. When it gets colder you may want to think about bubble wrap for insulating your Garden Polytunnel and glasshouse.
In just 3 weeks time the National Ploughing Championships are on we will have 3 polytunnels up with different features we will have our Budget Tunnel, Standard Tunnel and our Premium tunnel which is including our new Zig Zag Wire which can be used instead of a timber rail and sits on the end hoops to give it a drum like finish opposed to the pleated ends.
If you do not already have a polytunnel now is the time get a polytunnel as the weather is perfect for stretching the polythene. You will be able to use it in the winter and can get the tunnel ready for the spring.
We had a great day at the Tullamore show on Sunday despite the showers. It was great to see everybody that came in to us with their questions on the Budget Tunnels. So we are now on the countdown to the National Ploughing Championships in September.
