Hello again. I am looking at a simple irrigation system for a 20 x 12ft polytunnel. Has anyone got any good tips or advice so that I don't make an expensive mistake and purchase one which is unsuitable. What do you think of timers to turn them on? It my first tunnel and we are just putting the beds in. Thank you Cecelia



One of my clients has one of those timer systems which works very well, it’s the type that has the main pipe which has those smaller drip pipes attached, he’s had it for many years with good success, best to go to a garden centre and have a look at them and ask them for advice etc.

Thank you Julien, its good to know that someone has used one successfully for a long time. I am always a bit dubious about spending a lot of money on something I know very little about. I will look into the different makes and ask some question. If I can find a good one it will make life a lot easier in the summer. Thanks you
