Autumn into winter. This morning was spent sorting out the polytunnel and mending holes before winter winds take hold and destroy the cover. The hole in this picture was actually made by a small rabbit which got stuck in the tunnel and ate his way out! It’s important to make sure the cover is clean and dry, inside and out, on the spot where you are sticking the repair tape, so try and pick a sunny day if possible to wash and dry each bit of damage. I like to stick tape on the outside first, then go inside and reinforce it.
- Give your polytunnel its annual MOT before winter sets in.
