Growing tomato plants from tomato plugs is a great way of starting tomato plants that are strong and healthy. Ensuring a good crop of tomatoes later in the season. And what can be more convenient than being able to order tomato plugs online one day and having them delivered through your letter box the next! All ready for their new home.
A journey of my garden polytunnel installation through image. From the first polytunnel hoop at the end of March 2018 to raised beds two months later.

Tomatoes Recipe | Summer Winter Chicken
