A Caterpillar Tunnel, also known as a Low Tunnel, is an integral part of successful flower farming and season extension. The benefits of this type of tunnel are that it is affordable and simple to build, allows you to grow more robust flowers, and protects your flowers from damaging and inclement weather during the Winter and Spring months. In Part 1 of this demonstration, we describe how we bend 1/2 inch electrical conduit into hoops using the Johnny’s Seeds Low Tunnel hoop bender: https://www.johnnyseeds.com/tools-supplies/greenhouse-and-tunnel-supplies/benders/
In the next video, we continue our instruction for constructing a Low Tunnel for season extension. We will discuss the basic components needed and where they can be purchased. Follow along as we demonstrate each step in detail and provide tips for successfully installing the tunnel in less than 20 minutes.
