Q.Garden Polytunnel Cover

steve28 added on August 25, 2011 | Answered

I’m thinking of getting a polytunnel that comes with a reinforced UPVC (PE) and UVI 150g/sm interwoven cover (greenish). Do you think it would allow enough light in the winter months? Or would I be better with a clear covering? Many thanks.

I think the first choice is better. Clear plastic may actually let too much light in and may heat up the area too much, killing the plants inside the hoop houses.
