Posted on 14 September 2020
What are Easy Fleece Tunnels:
Easy Fleece Tunnels are growing tunnels that warms the air around your plants and protects them from frost and harsh weather. They also:-
- Lock in moisture
- Protect from pests
- Prevent sun scorching on hotter days
- Warm the soil ready for sowing
Easy Fleece Tunnels™ are manufactured from U.V. stabilised 45gsm heavyweight polypropylene fleece and rust resistant galvanised steel hoops. The high quality fleece material creates warmth and insulation whilst allowing moisture and sunlight to filter through amking it an ideal growing environment.
What crop are they for:
Ideal for spring vegetables such as: Beetroot, Carrot, Cauliflower, Courgette, Lettuce, Mar-row, Pepper, Potato, Tomato and Radish. The Giant Fleece Tunnel is especially good for starting off brassicas like your Christmas Brussels Sprouts. It will protect them while they are young and tender.
Where can I use Easy Fleece Tunnels:
They are suitable to use all over the garden. Simply push into the soil where required.
What's so special about it?
One of the advantages of these particular tunnels is that they do not need ground pegs. As with all Haxnicks tunnels, peg the steel hoops straight into the ground to keep the tunnel firmly in place. Another major advantage is that after use the tunnels fold up neatly for storage. It you keep the original packaging then you can just fold them flat and hang on a nail in the shed until they are needed again next season. Then they can be reused again and again.
