    i have a 4m x 2m polytunnel one of the £80 ones off of ebay with galvanised metal-pole frame gifted to me

    similar to this one [1] https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/253983853077

    what are your tips on wind-proofing polytunnels per-se

    i thinking of metal pole stakes at least one [1] ~ two [2] feet into the ground clamped on each corner and each middle strut about a third or half way up [would that be enough or would it need to be deeper…??

    would the stakes need to be at an angle like tent pegs…??

    Okay, I had my fun with the word balloon 🤪

    Consider products like the “Duckbill Earth Anchors.”

    Maybe cheaper than what others use …. Trailer home hold downs.

    I’m not affiliated.

    Let me know if that helps!

    Question off topic, but are you able to get all the seeds you need? It is a shame it is so troublesome to buy seeds between Europe and UK.

      thankfully i have all the seeds i need as stocked up a couple of years ago when i was also gifted lots of packets

      as for purchasing seed in the UK in twenty-twenty-three [2023] i have no ideas what the status is

      that said its still a bit early for most seed sales in local stores, thus i will keep my eyes open over the next month or so as they should pick up putting them on sale

    Red garden talks about it to, they are in Ireland and now it is also impossible for them unless they smuggle it over the border.

    So mutch to order on line, but no shipping so sad.

    Back to topic, better hold on to your tunnel(s), to important to lose. We have ground Ankern and more strong structure, hope it will hold for us another 20 years or longer.
