Funtime Frankies Tunnel of Love

Now that’s a catchy post title if I ever saw one :-)

After all the recent chat about a harsh Winter approaching, I thought we would share these photos showing Frankies New Poly Tunnel and Heat Bed.

Frankie & Phil are a father and son Bonsai tag team in our Society. Both were determined to make the most of Winter Protection this year by erecting a 4m Poly Tunnel. Not satisfied to leave it at that, they went that extra step and built a heat bed for the trees as well. Here’s the story in Photographs.

The erection of the Tunnel can be seen HERE

The next step was gathering up the required equipment for the heat bead.
