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.
