A Tomato House

The beautiful new Tomato House (ok it's just a regular greenhouse) has arrived to offer the Burgon & Ball tomato plants protection from sea winds (and hopefully the blight that has afflicted us so badly over the last 3 years). It's a striking design by Hartley Botanic who did an excellent job in constructing it in a very difficult location.
Had to clear a rather large Pyracanthus out of the way to get access - it was beautiful when covered with orange berries but would have reduced our legs to shreds every time we walked past. A blatent plug but seriously the Burgon & Ball Compound Action Loppers are amazing for this kind of job - they just slice right through really thick stems and the extending handles keep your arms out of the way of the lethal thorns.
