Organic Plants Delfland produce organic plants for growers and gardeners. I buy 12000 cabbage and broccoli, 9000 leeks, 15000 multi-sown onions and the greenhouse plants like 1000 tomatoes and 800 cucumbers that would take up too much space in my propagating house in the spring

First Tunnels My newest tunnels have come from First Tunnels, they are well priced and good quality, the frames are very strong and they are able to change the basic kits to suit my preferences for door arrangements, the standard kit comes with hinged doors which I find don't work for me on a sloping site. Both commercial and garden size tunnels
