Frequently Asked Questions
What is a High Tunnel?
High tunnels are hoop houses covered with greenhouse film or woven polyethylene fabric that will help increase crop yields and extend the growing season. Farmers use high tunnels to grow many different types of crops, including strawberries, raspberries, tomatoes, beets, carrots, cucumbers, eggplants, peppers, radishes, squash and herbs, as well as roses and a variety of flowers.
What covering do you suggest?
The ClearSpan suggested greenhouse film for high tunnels is Sun Master® 6 mil 4 year clear film, made from strong copolymer resin for strength and durability. Sun Master® Greenhouse Film contains anti-dust additives that repel dirt and dust to allow for 92% light transmission.
How are High Tunnels ventilated?
Tunnel ventilation is very simple and is one of the advantages of a high tunnel over a greenhouse. Temperatures in the high tunnel can be monitored by adjusting the sides, end doors, and peak vents. Sides can be rolled up and doors can be opened fully or partially, depending on the ambient temperature. Frequently, growers will leave their high tunnels rolled up day and night in the summer, but close them at night during the spring and fall to protect plants from cold weather or potential frost.
Does the High Tunnel need to be anchored?
Since plants grown in a high tunnel are typically established in the ground, high tunnels are usually anchored in soil. Ground posts are driven into the ground about every two feet. Setting posts in concrete is recommended.
What are the shipping charges?
