In tough times, growing your own food in a First Tunnels Polytunnel can pay dividends.
Credit Crunch, recession, economic downturn – whatever you call it, families are feeling the pinch. With pay freezes biting and tax rises looming, it’s no wonder the Brits are investigating every option to cut the cost of living.
Watch any finanace programme on TV and the “experts” will conjour up tricks to slash household bills. But why do so many experts overlook the most effective (and rewarding) way of saving cash and improving your family’s health growing your own food?
Many of your five-a-day essentials can easily be grown in a polytunnel from First Tunnels.
With autumn just around the corner, a polytunnel holds the key to extending the growing season. Growing under cover creates a unique micro climate protecting crops from harmful winds, while frost damage becomes a thing of the past. A polytunnel makes valuable sunshine work harder. Crops grow faster and plants are stronger, while yields are higher than you could expect outdoors – and for a fraction of the cost of a greenhouse!
Gardeners are even using their poytunnels to generate extra cash by growing their hanging baskets and flowers to sell at fetes and car boot sales. (see picture above)
There’s never been a better time to reap the financial and health benefits of polytunnel gardening!
