Are Grow Tunnels as Good as Greenhouses?
Per Square Metre, Grow Tunnels are often much better value for money than greenhouses. This is mainly due to the differences in materials used. For example, our Shelter Logic Tunnel Style Greenhouses are made from Triple Layer Heat Bonded Ripstop Translucent Cover, which is like a plastic sheet.
They are more modern in design, and do look more industrial, however if your main priority is value and functionality (in growing plants and food), then you can make great savings by going for a tunnel greenhouse. The frames on tunnel greenhouses can be just as heavy duty as traditional greenhouses.

You may notice that Palram greenhouses, such as the Mythos, come with polycarbonate panels, rather than glass. Although glass is a material traditionally used in greenhouses, there are many key benefits in using Polycarbonate. Polycarbonate is a plastic style substitute for glass, and used in a variety of products. Like glass, this can be transparent or translucent, allowing light and heat inside your greenhouse.
Firstly, Polycarbonate tends to be cheaper in price, and whilst giving the distant appearance of glass, can give you a better value for money greenhouse and allow you to save money. In many ways, Polycarbonate is superior to glass, and Palram's range of greenhouses come with virtually unbreakable panels. Imagine the scenario; a child hits a ball at your glass greenhouse, or a bird drops a stone on it. Chances are glass will shatter, and the panel will need to be replaced at a cost.
With Palram's greenhouses, there is no glass to shatter or break, as polycarbonate has much better impact absorption than glass, and essentially can result in lower maintenance costs in the long run. Take a look at our Harmony Greenhouse 6x6; traditional styled and compact in size which makes it ideal for smaller gardens, and in a choice of two colours.
