advice on buying a polytunnel
« on: June 12, 2011, 17:58 »
I am not sure this is in the correct area but any advice would be welcomed.  I want to buy a poly tunnel, my allotment is in quite a windy area and I wondered if anyone could give me some advice on the best one to buy and if there are any sites worth checking out.  i dont really want to spend much more than 150 but I have quite a large space I could place it on.

THANK YOU IN ADVANCE

Wyevale have some in at the moment about 80 reduced from 120 the frame looked quite strong nuts and bolts rather than the plastic fitting's. I would have got one if i didnt have the greenhouse's.
Thanks
Kris

hi there,this is my first year as a polytunnel owner,there are a few options to your question,i did quite a bit of research and FIRST TUNNELS i decided was going to be my option i thought the price was reasonable with an excellant website with building instructions and advice on growing,but then i decided to go on ebay and bid on quite a few tunnels,i finally won a frame 10 by 20 in cambridge, a long way i know but i did get it for 50 quid i then bought all the fixtures,fittings and sheet from FIRST TUNNELS.
       my site is windy all the time so it needed to be exceptionlly strong,the strength in a poly is definatley in the building of it,my tubes are 28mm and i have put on plenty of cross members and really pulled everything together,i could have flung it up in a day but i took four days to do it to make sure i wasnt missing anything out and it was as tight as i could get it.the thought of having to start from the beginning after been blown down filled me with dread.hope some of this helps.
