Top Reasons Tunnel Gardens Thrive!
PASSIVE SOLAR - There is no external power source required as the Tunnel Garden is warmed and sustained by the sun. This makes it portable, economical, and extremely efficient.
LOW TO THE GROUND - All the warmth stays low to heat the air and soil creating ideal conditions for plants to not only survive but thrive. Green houses and cold frames are great, but because they are tall they are not able to heat as efficiently as a low tunnel system.
GERMINATE FAST - Seed Germinate FAST in the warm and humid environment. Your seeds can germinate a week or more faster than if you planted them in the soil. Yet another way the Tunnel Garden helps you to maximize your growing season!
AIR TIGHT -The key is to keep the plastic tight to the ground so that all the earth’s radiant heat is trapped inside.
NEGLECT ENCOURAGED - Winter neglect is welcome. The tunnels are very humid – so watering in the winter is rarely necessary.
EASY TO WORK - There is no crawling on your belly to work your Tunnel Garden, simply lift the side to water & weed.
