Stegsie,

You can get a decent polytunnel for about 150. I know that there are not secure storage but neither is a wooden shed.

As Fen quite rightly says - a shed isn't secure storage. The first bit of advice from our allotment plot secretary was to NOT put a lock on any shed I decide to build. The reasoning behind this is that thieves see a lock and think there must be something of value inside. They will then do almost anything to get in. Apparently sheds have been virtually destroyed just to get inside. I was told it was safe to leave old tools and fertilisers etc... but anything saleable should leave site when I do.

Totally agree with this thinking. Police advice is to secure with huge padlock, so doors are splintered by vandals/thieves in an effort to see there is nothing of any intrinsic value inside
Wisdom is knowing what to ignore - be comfortable in your own skin.
