As the plastic ages, it lets less light through, however the plastic on our homemade tunnel was pre-loved and is now into its fifth year with us and still doing fine. :)

It's probably not a good idea as they'd like you to buy a new one!
Did it really tell you to do THAT on the packet?

Seeds are SOWN, planting's for plants (and bulbs & tubers)!
