With the development of new polythene covers it is now possible to grow all kinds of crops and exotic plants in a polytunnel. Even in the cold UK weather, strawberries, tomatoes and even chillies flourish under cover – 90% of British strawberries are grown in polytunnels with the growing season stretching from early spring to late autumn. Many award-winning flowers and record-breaking vegetables are also grown this way. Most importantly a polytunnel can help to put you in control of nature, helping to extend the growing season and meaning you can enjoy home-grown, healthy meals all year round.
