Line-up for first Polytunnel:
1521 Barlow/Jacobus squash,
2014 Paton (thanks to Ian & Stuart)
2139 Skonager (EGVGA seed of the year)
and a surprise last spot for
1938 Sperry (thanks to Matt Winey)

Planted yesterday, soil cables, and fleece cloches kept plants to 9c minimum overnight whilst rest of polytunnel dropped to zero. So that seems like a result.
Daytime temperatures in the polytunnel are 25-30c so hoping for swift establishment.
Next Polytunnel due for planting 1st May and outside plants 2 weeks afterwards.
