Hoophouse Side-ends

BunnDecember 11, 2004

Dear Hardy Gardeners,

I read Eliot Colemans directions for making PVC/rebar-hoophouses, but I'm confused as to how to make and attach the semi-circular ends. Surely they don't clip on by means of short split lengths of PVC. Say, does anybody know how to do that? ---Bunn

Do you mean you aren't sure how to attach the plastic at the ends?? I buried mine on three sides and framed out a door at the other. Attached the plastic to the door frame and supporting structure with thin strips of wood screwed down thru the plastic. I did split up some 1 inch black plastic water pipe sections (approx 3 in long or so), down the middle, and I pry those open and clamp them over hoops in various places to help gather up the "slack" in the plastic. Hope this helps!
