A Polytunnel is a cost effective alternative or addition to a greenhouse and a warm covered plot will certainly extend your growing season enormously and increase the number of different varieties of vegetables you can grow.
The 8ft (2.44m) wide polytunnel is one of the most popular sizes in our range, with 3ft 3in (0.99m) high straight sides and an overall height of 6ft 8in (2.03m) it provides good growing space and air circulation. The 8ft Wide Polytunnel is available in 3 lengths - 10ft, 15ft & 20ft.
There are two designs available; Trench or Rail versions. With the Trench version you will need to dig a trench around the perimeter of the Polytunnel to secure the structure into place. The Rail version doesn't require a a trench and is supplied with anchor plates to secure the polytunnel. Although the Trench version is slightly cheaper, the Base Rail version is a stronger alternative which is easier to install.
Both versions are covered with a film that has been specifically designed for the UK where low light levels are common. This film allows 90% light transmission allowing through more of the light spectrum used by plants. It also scatters light entering the polytunnel. This UV stabilised film is 200 microns (800 Gauge) and is supplied with a five year guarantee.
Timber Sliding Doors are supplied for each end of the polytunnel, Anti Hot Spot Tape and of course the Framework to support the 200 micron Smart Clear Polythene cover.
