Polytunnel tutorial link - very useful!

default Polytunnel tutorial link - very useful!

Post by chickenofthewoods on 23rd February 2010, 2:25 pm

I found this tutorial on the Over the Garden Gate website & really admired the clever and fairly simple DIY aproach to building your own polytunnel so I thought it worth posting.

I have seen that pop up on a few forums and a couple of reports from people who followed the instructions with positive results.

A ha I have been trying to remember where I saw that link, so thanks CoTW for putting it up....

I know someone who has built a similar one and is well pleased with it.

It does look really good doesn't it? We don't have the space at the moment, but I'd really love to have a go at one. Those water pipes are also used to make very effective geodesic domes too. I'll have to see if I can find the link for that one too & post it up.

I saw on another site polytunnels that you could buy for £69/ £79,
OK ithas been made in a factory may be,
But if like me I don't have many people that I can call on to help make one then thats the only way.

I'll try and find the site I saw it on, But the one you saw COTW was very nice and I would jump at a chance to get hold of one.

I know what you mean Nick, DIY-ing isn't for everyone for loads of reasons, and you'd still have to get hold of the plastic sheeting to cover it with once you've done the frame & stuff. My only reservations are that often the frames (and sometimes the plastic sheeting) on affordable ready made jobs aren't as robust as I'd like and I have to admit that the pictures suggest a very solid looking structure for a home-build. Horses for courses?
