I've just ordered a polytunnel for our new fruit and veg plot. It's quite big - 4m wide x 8m long. There is also a shade net including for high summer.
I'm planning to erect it facing east with the long sides facing north and south to allow for sun worshipers and plants which need less and there will be a door at either end for ventilation.
It will be used for starting off crops early and ornamentals too and then producing salads and some veggies in the lean months and sheltering tender stuff like dahlias and cannas over winter.
Any tips on making the support poles secure, tying it down, general care and maintenance? I've only ever had a teeny glasshouse and that in much colder climes.
