    I used an old wood greenhouse end frame to make a ready made door, works well and I can lock it. Plus a roll of mesh to make a barrier for cats when door is open in hot weather,

    I used webbing straps with 18" ground anchors, loosely tied so not to bend the plastic but will not allow it to expand in the wind. 3 on a 9m tunnel

    Condensation will persist from day today, its part of our damp climate. Dampness can be more of a killer than the actual cold.You can only do your best and ventilate when ever you get the chance.

    Time for a tunnel

    stainless bolts would be best but could cost you more than the tunnel. If you coat zinc bolts/hardware with a thin layer of vaseline it`ll keep the moisture off and they wont rust as fast.
