Default Green house Hoop Tunnel;



Advertise Here

I am looking for a hoop tunnel or greenhouse info. I see some in the 200 dollar and under range on amazon. i was wondering if anyone had something similar and how they hold up to wind and rain maybe even a light snow.

I lost a lot of seedlings and had some rot due to the constant rain in the spring.
It needs to be semi portable as I want to take it down at times.

I have the option of rebar stakes, hooped PVC, and plastic designs, but at just over $100 these look to be more sturdy and not as bad an eye sore.

Thanks

amazon @ $119 15x7x7

Does it tell you what mill thickness the plastic is and is there any UV resistance?

Be careful about the plastic.

Does anyone have a good source for thick plastic? Our greenhouse plastic finally bit the dust this last year and we need to replace it.

I have ordered from Agriculturalsolutions.com... they custom cut to your dimensions. They offer several options as well. Tinted, Anti-drip, etc.
