Propagating Tunnel

Postby Perry The Pom » Thu Apr 13, 2017 4:13 pm

I would like to make a Propagating Tunnel. Only a small 3m X 3m. I normally have my seed trays in our Patio and the wife is complaining ( As they do!!) I needed to know what is the name of that white plastic material that the Nurseries use.
I would like also some info on where I can find out the best way to build it please.
Cheers Perry

If you're in SA, have a look at Fenlow Tunnels. They're not very internet savvy though, they don't have a massive web presence!

I don't know very well, but aren't the white plastic tubes some sort of PVC piping? It seems like it could be a good substitute as long as you give it a decent wash a couple of times. I had a friend who is trying to incorporate the stuff into a hydroponics kind of set-up. I'll update you guys when I know how he's doing...

Look on Google for information on Polytunnel. eBay has both the plastic and full kits listed.

Hi. I'm pretty sure it's a polyurethane plastic used and pvc piping
For the structure. Good to put small stones as the base and
Is better to keep trays off the ground. Good luck!
