Mini Polytunnel Kits For Vegetable Gardening
Mini Polytunnel Kits
Our Quickcrop mini polytunnel kits have been designed to be attached, via a hinge, to a timber raised bed. They can also be secured straight into the ground using the included ground pegs. These mini tunnels act as a small greenhouse providing extra warmth and plant protection at a fraction of the price of a regular polytunnel or glasshouse. They are ideal for extending the vegetable growing season by getting started earlier in the spring before the cold weather has completely passed or by growing later in the year and overwintering.
Mini polytunnels are suitable for home gardens of all sizes and allotments, they are the perfect alternative to costly, permanent garden structures. Our mini tunnels come in easy to assemble kits, and the great thing about them is that they are light and portable. They can be moved around the garden to wherever they’re needed with ease and fasten to the ground or raised bed securely so they won’t be moved by the weather. They can be covered with polythene, insect mesh, or garden fleece depending on what it is needed for.
Mini Polytunnel For Soil Warming
If used with a polythene cover, the mini tunnel becomes invaluable as a soil warming tool. Simply fasten over a raised bed or area of ground and it will heat the soil before seedlings are put in. They also offer protection against frost, garden pests, pets and wildlife, and weather extremes.
