Your photo of polytunnel so far looks impressive (particularly as all the bits were free) and similar to what will remain of mine when I strip the old polythene off.  Will await with interest for any tips for putting the cover on - the task looks fairly daunting.  Good Luck :!:

hi pp

                   bottom half of tunnels gonna have scaffolding debris around
                   for ventilation,we are waiting for roofers lats to build a frame
                          inbetween the poles.

                    i have been told to do polythene cover on a warm wind free day(thatl be fun)
one of the old guys at the lottie has given us some fishing net to put over cover apparently it stops polythene flapping about in the wind .

we are hoping to have about 5 of us to put the the cover on il let you know how how it goes

Brian and I did my 24ft polytunnel on our own, and it was a bit of a task!  Could have done with another pair of hands!!!!  But we got there in the end after a lot of swearing on MY part as certain people don't always say what they mean!!!!    :lol:  :lol:

Flatcap, when you do put up that film, taking along someone to take pix for us so we can see how you managed it all and if the netting helped.
