Evening all,

I have just acquired a new polytunnel and I have also managed to get my mitts on lots of wood and I was wondering how would you build from scratch the inside of this polytunnel to maximise its full potential?

Any ideas/tips would be most welcome!

Samuel

I've set up my poly tunnel(16ft x 24ft) with raised hugel beds and a dug down walkway down the middle. Its worked out really well for me so far. Got my first really good harvest of tomatoes last season (zone 6). This setup has worked a lot better than growing on the ground.
