    Theres a Polytunnel Handbook by Andy McKee and Mark Gatter. Lots of useful basic info on how to site, build and maintain a polytunnel.

    The main thing I'd say is never take a stick (or bamboo cane or stake) anywhere near it.

    Used them to grow early Chrysanths, when the polythene cover was rolled half way up during the growing season, with rokolene netting in its place, worked very well, used for storage during the winter,
