Not sure if a hoop tunnel is a greenhouse but hopefully you let this thread live here :)
After having a terrible year in 2017, i've decided to go with a hoop tunnel. I live in the middle of Sweden, a little bit in the hills so we have a different climate zone which is generally 5 degrees cool than in the nearby city.
After watching many youtube vids i'm all good to try it out but have a few questions:
1) i'll cover the hoops with a fiber cloth which says it lets in 90% of the sunlight but realistically, how much temperature increase can i expect? There is a bit of shade where the hoop tunnel will be, perhaps 30% of the time the sun shines.
2) would clear plastic be better? whats really the difference here between the clear plastic and fiber cloth?
3) i use drip hoses for watering so having rain water fall on the garden is not crucial. will condensation be an issue?
i like to grow a variety of vegetables, carrots, peas, radishes, lettuce, potatoes and tomatoes.
i also have loads of raspberries, strawberries and blueberries.
4) will it help the fruits along to loosely cover them with the fiber cloth?
thanks for any help
