Class job JBlaney. It amazes me what some folks come up with. Are you using any anti hot spot tape where joints meet plastic like this?

just finished putting a polytunnel up; it's oriented north-south due to the plot available, but i was wondering about pollination and humidity. we've put a panel on the door which is roughly one inch mesh, to allow air to circulate and hopefully allow bees in and out; but are there any other things we should look out for to attract bees and keep the humidity reasonable?

Toying with an idea to stick up a polytunnel on my allotment.

I have this one in mind:
http://www.overthegardengate.net/UserPages/pp_view.asp?FName=Polytunnel&Page=1

One issue is where to source the 50mm water pipe from. Anyone know? I've rang around various hardware shops and builders suppliers but most seem to stock 1.5inch pipe (38mm). I would be using standard 48mm tubing as per the instructions.

Did you lok at Polydome in Birr they have a good selection. Try a plumbing shop for the pipe, you can get reducers from 50mm to 38mm. Also check your water pressure. I saw a poly tunnel made from an old trampoline very clever low maintenance too.

Know absolutely nothing about polytunnels but want to purchase one. Where might I buy one 10 x 20 at a reasonable price?

Hi all , just joined the forum tonight having read a lot from it over the last few weeks in preparation for my first steps into "The Good Life". I've just put up my pollytunnel (last Friday) and plan to get going this week with the sowing. Any way just wanted to say hi. I'll post a pic of the tunnel if anyone is interested. Very Happy

I was trying to add a few pics but the "choose file" option is not available in the add attachment box. I'm using an iPad could this be the reason.

I am considering putting up a smallish polytunnel for next year, 6m x 3m.
There are adverts on this thread from ebay from a UK company for what i would consider a very cheap price but my father always told me that you get what you pay for. Has anyone purchased one of these and what are they like?
Having read the whole thread I found a web link to http://www.overthegardengate.net which got me thinking. I have everything here already bar the 50mm gas or water pipe to make the hoops so I might give that a blast. Alternatively, if the polytunnels from ebay can be sourced from an Irish company for a similar price AND they are any good i.e. robust, then I may get one of them if anyone knows where to go please. I am limited in what I can build, not by size as that is not a problem at all but by the permanancy of the structure as I will at some point need to take it down and bring it with me as we are in rented accomodation and no long lease. That is initially what appealed to me about the ebay ones, fold them up and bring them with you.
