When using a polytunnel to grow in summer you need to be careful to select plants that can tolerate high heat conditions and are not too tall or they will hit the roof.
We find that along with the vegetables such as Tomatoes, Cucumbers, Peppers flowers such as Zinnia’s fit the bill perfectly. Growing uncover you will be shielding plants for wind and rain and the defused sunlight will also cause stems to elongate and become taller than those grown out in the garden, perfect for cut flowers. Be wary of the plants drying out faster and check them regularly.
