Hotter summers. Colder winters. It’s hard to know what to expect as our climate continually changes. But with a First Tunnels Polytunnel, you can make the growing season last right through the year, come rain or shine, heat wave or big freeze! And by creating your own microclimate, you can even grow crops “out of season”, or fruits and vegetables not usually found on these shores.
Who are First Tunnels?
Who are we? Well, we’re the first name on your list when it comes to dealing with people who really understand Polytunnels – inside out!
Home is a tiny Lancashire village of Barrowford where we have assembled a close-knit team of skilled professionals who take an enormous pride in the quality and versatility of our products. But we’re enthusiast too, and by regularly using our own products. we’ve made lots of improvements and innovations. We even have our own allotment for some serious hands-on growing.
As for our happy customers, some of the names may surprise you. As well as amateur gardeners and commercial growers, we also supply major government organisations:
- HM Prisons
- NHS Trusts
We also supply celebs like:
- Alan Titchmarsh
- Bob Flowerdew

Ask any First Tunnels customers and they’ll tell you how hard we work to deliver a top quality product- but now its official!
