What pipe to use for raised bed hoop house/tunnel/netting frame, (etc)?

Posted: 10/08/2016 at 16:34

All agricultural merchants, plumbing suppliers, building material suppliers, etc, etc sell blue water pipe.   It can be used above ground or underground.  It is easy to cut with a hack-saw.


Try not to over-think the problem.  It will be plenty bendy.  And it will outlast you unless you are a very, very young person.

Yes you can safely leave them in the soil, but the slugs may get them.  Just make sure they are fully covered by soil.

I agree with B3 chop them in half with scissors and leave them where they fall.  What a waste of energy to bag them up.  Why??

You can wash the things you want to eat raw in baby bottle sterilizer.  Anything you boil will be safe.  Wash your hands well and wear gloves.

Sellotape is really useful to bind a break up.  So long as water and nutrients can pass up the stem it will survive.

If you really can't remember, take a ripe example to an Apple Day in October.  They are held all over the country, and there will be an expert there.

A ring spanner is useful too.

You could be a good neighbour and dig a soakaway.
