As the weather gets warmer, the temperature inside your Polytunnel will soar, making thirsty work for your crops.
If you are looking for a new or replacement Polytunnel, it’s well worth considering an irrigation system, as this will save you a lot of time in the long run. Not only will it make your life a whole lot easier, you’ll be amazed how quickly it will pay for itself in terms of time saved, saved money (especially if your water is metered) and improved productivity.
If your current Polytunnel doesn’t have an irrigation system, fear not, First Tunnels have other ways to keep your crops thirst at bay.
