Polytunnels in the wind!

11-25-2012
The question we're asked mostly, especially at this time of year, is whether a polytunnel will stand up to severe weather. The answer is a definite "yes"...if constructed correctly polytunnels are incredibly strong. We've supplied polytunnels all over France, even in the Alps and Corsica, and as far afield as Southern Spain, and we haven't heard of any problems. The polythene we supply is the same as that used on the huge commercial tunnels that you see around...growers and garden centres wouldn't  take the risk of their structures being destroyed in the wind if they didn't have confidence in the product! If you're fed up with the rain...bring the outside, inside!
