Are they worth having???
« on: June 01, 2024, 09:04 »
Looking for any opinions on if Polytunnels are worth the expense also which models/companies would you recommend   ???

Looked through so may I have now confused myself on which way to go.

I've always fancied one so I'm looking forward to seeing people's comments.

We put mine up in April ?21. 14 x25ft from First Tunnels and I love it, it?s an amazing space. Things grow huge in there, not totally got to grips with timings of things as yet and overwinter growing but I?m really enjoying it
P.s it?s on my allotment not at home

I had one at my old garden, for a few years and grew everything you could think of in there. Lots more space than in a greenhouse  :) They're a great escape from winter weather, although you do need to get the hang of keeping them ventilated.

They're fantastic if you can afford a 'decent' strong, brand, the cheaper ones (like mine) just break apart in strong wind, and the covers disintegrate after 2 or 3 years :(

I'm a big fan. I built one at my old allotment (which I'm proud to say is still standing despite the neglect of 2 subsequent tennants!) In the summer you can reliably grow warmer climate crops like peppers, aubergines, melons, etc but the real benefit for me is the ability to grow hardy salad crops and brassicas through the winter.

I forgot to say, I'm another who strongly recommends North Polytunnels. Very good quality, great service and good prices.
