Shade Houses are ideal for protecting plants from the harshness of the outdoor environment while also allowing them to toughen off after growing inside the tunnel house. Its ideal for growing plants in during the hot summer months as you still get the full, all day sun but its not has harsh and won't cause leaf or flower burn.

 What is difference with a Morrifield Shade House?
Your Shade House is set on a H4 Tanalised Pinus (wood base) which makes them sturdy but light weight so you can build and move it into place or incorporate the wood into a wooden garden bed for a seamless look.
Using pre-drilled holes in both the timber base and within the aluminium hoops to make assembly simple and fast. Knowing your rails and hoops are in the correct place helps to reassure you that you’re setting it all up correctly and importantly strongly.

The tall 2.3m apex height gives plenty of height for tall growing crops and gives increased internal air volume to act as a temperature buffer and frost protector.

All our Shade Houses have a 2.35m wide base and have a commercial grade, 30% knitted white shade cloth fitted to the ends, walls and roof of the tunnel house design.
