If you would like to learn more about gardening in a Hoop House or High tunnel year round, we highly recommend the book:
Four-Season Harvest by Eliot Coleman.
Eliot Coleman’s book Four-Season Harvest is the information source for year round gardening in a Hoop House Greenhouse.
Quote from the book (pg. 111Constructing the High Tunnel):
"Low-cost tunnel greenhouses work so well that if the public were more familiar with them, I think every gardening family would have one. they are a very flexible form of crop protection, since they can be erected quickly and covered or uncovered easily. They provide a protected environment that can appear almost at will - protection that did not exist yesterday but is in place today."
Hoop Houses in the News – They’re making Headlines:
Here are some points that support the choice to go with one of our Hoop House Greenhouse Kits:
Galvanized Steel – will never rust.
Last indefinitely. (for instance – PVC pipe is damaged and becomes brittle from the Sun’s UV Rays, and need to be replaced over time).
Strength behind the Galvanized steel hoops.
In-expensive: We make them ourselves – we don’t have large overhead so we pass the savings on to you. (but don’t be fooled – they are not cheaply constructed – we use a standard 1 and 3/8” Galvanized steel tubing – so they will not rust, and are a sturdy and heavy duty Hoop House)
