Quite small and yet perfectly formed, our 8ft wide polytunnels are a popular choice for domestic use, for gardens, allotments and other little community spaces. No matter how much growing space you have you always want more but an 8ft wide polytunnel is easily big enough to allow you to grow food all year round. Just choose the length of tunnel you require - we recommend going for a tunnel that is as long as you can fit in your space - there is always something more you will want to cram in! Then just click on any extras you may wish to buy. Not sure what's included? Click on 'What's In The Kit' to find out what you need to know.
Polytunnel extras will not only allow you to make the most of your space, maximise yield and make your life easier, they can also allow you to get some great savings with our bonus save scheme. Buy extras such as base rails, crop bars, sliding doors or staging and you can save up to 20% on your purchase. 8ft wide polytunnels are great value for money, allowing you to cut costs on feeding your family. With these bonus savings, they are even better for your household finances.

We haven’t stopped there, we know many people build their polytunnels at the weekend or over a bank holiday when our office is closed, so we have also produced a series of Polytunnel Construction Videos. This collection of videos can be viewed anytime, on your home computer, and even your phone for when you are in the thick of things constructing your polytunnel.
We supply Timber Hinged Doors at each end, Anti Hot Spot Tape, Timber Base Rails and of course the Framework to support our 200 micron Super Therm Polythene cover.
You will be required to secure the foundations into concrete, alternative methods of securing the polytunnel can be selected, eliminating the requirement of concrete – see ‘Polytunnel Foundation’ section.
