With only 4 weeks until the clocks change here are a few things you can do in your polytunnel in February:



  1. Continue starting seedlings indoors for transplanting later in the season.

  2. Begin hardening off seedlings by gradually exposing them to outdoor conditions.

  3. Plant cool-season crops such as lettuce, spinach, and radishes in the polytunnel.

  4. Install shading material or coverings to protect your plants from too much sunlight during hot weather.

  5. Check the polytunnel for pests and diseases and take action if necessary

  6. Keep an eye on the temperature and humidity levels inside the polytunnel and adjust as needed to provide the best growing conditions for your plants

  7. Order any additional equipment or supplies you will need for the upcoming growing season.

  8. Start preparing the soil by turning it over, adding organic matter and any other amendments that are needed.

  9. Clean and disinfect the polytunnel to prevent the spread of pests and diseases

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