Description Reviews Questions

Our Mini Polytunnel builder page is designed so you can pick all the components you need to build a mini polytunnel without having to skip between product pages.

Our mini tunnels consist of a 2x2 wooden frame which we supply in 3, 4 and 6 ft lengths. You can build a longer tunnel if you wish but you will need to source longer timber locally as the longest length we can send.

The frames are held together by corner tube supports which fix the timber at a right angles and also provide the support for the tubing. We recommend using a single centre tube support for a 6 foot tunnel but you can add as many as you like depending on the length you want to build.

Once you have the supports fixed the tubing is simply slotted in and joined in the middle by the cross piece tube connectors. The same cross piece is used at the gable end of the tunnel as they feature blunt ends which won't tear the polytunnel plastic. For a 3 foot wide tunnel you will need a meter of tubing each side for each hoop, to retain the height on a 4ft wide tunnel use 1.5m of tube. Tubing can be easily cut with a stanley knife to fit your size, it is always handy to order one extra meter of tubing than you need to give you some room for error. As my friend Des says, "I'd rather be looking at it than for it".

When you have the frame of the tunnel built you can fix a choice of coverings to the structure including polythene, enviromesh, fleece or butterfly and bird netting. All coverings are fixed to the frame using the fasteners and washers, have a look at the video to see how this is done.
