Celebrating Success in the Summer Show Season with Our Champion Garden Tunnel Customers

With the summer show season in full swing, it’s the perfect time to highlight some of the fantastic success stories from our champion Garden Tunnel customers. This year, we’ve had the pleasure of attending five shows with our Garden Tunnel, and we’re currently setting up for the Royal Three Counties Show. From there, we’ll be heading to the Royal Highland, Great Yorkshire, Royal Welsh, New Forest and Hampshire County Show and finally the RHS Malvern Autumn Show.

We love meeting new people and catching up with old friends at these events. So, if you’re attending any of these shows, please stop by the polytunnel to say hi!

Spotlight on Our Champions: Daryll Pidd and Owain Roberts

I looked at loads of different polytunnels before I bought one ….but the build quality and high sides of the Haygrove one stood out a mile …it’s had some bad weather thrown at it ..and never blinked. I also wanted a second door putting in the back for air flow for my onions …rang Tim …no problem …it’s all fitted now…

Owain Roberts and His Award-Winning Leeks

One of the standout successes from last year’s shows is Owain Roberts with his award-winning leeks. Owain has been growing his spectacular vegetables in a Haygrove Garden Tunnel for years, and his results are nothing short of impressive.

When we visited Owain to re-cover his 14-year-old Garden Tunnel, we were amazed by his leeks. Situated 1000 feet above sea level, his polytunnel site is particularly exposed to the wind. Despite these challenging conditions, Owain’s leeks thrive, starting off in November in a heated greenhouse and moving to the Garden Tunnel by April.

Owain attributes the healthy, scorch-free leaves of his produce to the unique properties of the Haygrove Garden Tunnel cover. The woven polythene material used for the cover diffuses light effectively, scattering it as it enters the tunnel. This prevents the scorching of leaves and allows the light to penetrate deeply into the plant canopy, ensuring robust and healthy growth.

Why Haygrove Garden Tunnels Make a Difference

The success stories of customers like Owain highlight the significant benefits of using Haygrove Garden Tunnels. The specially designed polytunnel covers offer:

  • Light Diffusion: The woven polythene cover scatters light, preventing leaf scorch and promoting even growth.
  • Wind Resistance: Despite being in a windy location, Owain’s Garden Tunnel withstands the elements, providing a stable environment for his leeks.
  • Durability: With a lifespan of over a decade, the Haygrove Garden Tunnel proves to be a long-term investment for serious gardeners.
