OMG....jealous!!! We have a polytunnel, nowhere near as big. Been given a greenhouse frame which we will cover in twin wall polycarb so I can move all the seedlings out of the tunnel, its impossible to walk in there at the moment.

When we bought the poly tunnel my hubby said to get a bigger one but I felt guilty spending so much money in something that was primarily for me, wish I'd listened to him now!!!

No matter how big it is, you will always want a bigger one.

Maggie, what thickness/grade/type of twinwall polycarbnate did you use for your polytunnel conversion? Can you recommend a supplier? It looks really good and set me thinking that I might like to do the same.

OH tells me it was 10mm. It was the same stuff that they sell in B+Q - Corotherm? We bought it online but I can't remember where from. It wasn't cheap but a much better price than from the aforementioned!

I love to see other peoples polytunnel photo's, very interesting. I got my first tunnel about 12 years ago and didn't know anyone else who had one, so I was pretty much on my own, didn't know about gardening forums as I wasn't big into the net, so I just made it up as I went along, I now have two tunnels, you really can get bitten by the bug, here are pictures of my small one 10 ft x 35 ft and the larger one 14 ft by 72 ft. A tunnel really revolutionises your growing year, I can't imagine life without them now
