polytunnel help please
« on: February 18, 2009, 03:26:09 pm »
Hi I'm about to erect my tunnel that I bought second hand, any guidance would be much appreciated. I found a site that had a great section about using scaffold planks rather than dig a trench for the plastic - but I can't find the site again. Any comments?
Also, any ideas where the best place to buy the plastic is?

We dug trench, not heard about scaffolding planks, however I know that some can come with a metal frame to hold them down..........

There's quite a few threads already on this site with reference to polytunnels,their construction,where to source new covers and a great post by "resistence-is-fertile".,294.0.html,1486.0.html,314.0.html

 Enjoy! ......... Ree
