Here are a few things you can do in your polytunnel in April:

  1. Continue planting warm-season crops such as tomatoes, peppers, cucumbers, and courgettes

  2. Install irrigation systems or set up a watering schedule for your plants.

  3. Monitor your plants for pests and diseases and take action if necessary.

  4. Start training and pruning tomatoes, cucumbers and other climbing plants to support the structure of the plant and increase the yield.

  5. Begin planting summer-flowering annuals, such as zinnias, marigolds, and cosmos, to add color to your polytunnel.

  6. Start harvesting cool-season crops such as lettuce, radishes and peas.

  7. Start planning for crop rotation for next year

  8. Check and maintain the polytunnel for any repairs or maintenance that may be needed.

  9. Continue to monitor temperature and humidity, and adjust as needed to provide the best growing conditions for your plants.

  10. Keep an eye on the weather forecast and be prepared to protect your plants if a frost or freeze is expected.
