Due to popular demand, we’ve created a more affordable version of our durable wood and solar glazing hoop houses.
With freezing nights here in Central Oregon, a hoop house is one of the best ways to add a layer of protection for your tender plants. Keep in mind that on particularly cold nights (especially below freezing!) it is best to cover your hoop houses with an additional heavy layer or add some sort of heating device to the hoop house. Starting your plants indoors and ‘hardening them off’, essentially introducing them to outside temperatures gradually, is always a good idea, but cold weather is no match for even the most hardy basil or tomato plant.
Our econo-hoop houses come in two sizes:
4’ x 4’ = $139.95 (Kit form, you assemble) $159.95 (assembled)
4’ x 8’ = $199.95 (Kit form, you assemble) $229.95 (assembled)
