What crop are they for:

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.
