Polytunnel 'vs' Greenhouse
I have had allotments in Leicester for about 15 years, so im not a total newcomer to growing my own, i also have 3x 8'x6' 1x10'x8' and 1x10'x12' greenhouses that ive accumalated and made good use of with tomatoes peppers,cucumber's etc.
However im looking forward to this coming season with great anticipation.
About this time last year i was given a a 36' x 8' aluminium greenhouse that had been dismantled and lay under a huge oak tree for 6 years.Its took me almost a year to get the frame cleaned up, scrounge up enough glass to replace the missing bits, and visit almost every branch of wilko in leicester and buy all the glazing clips they have and get it erected.
And now through unfortunate circumstances - my friend stan has had a major op and is sidelined for a year -so i have the use of his 48'x14' polytunnel this year.

Thanks for reading thus far ....... now for the questions.
Will the large greenhouse get as hot as the smaller 8x6 / 10x8 - or due to the area it covers will it be a little cooler ?.
If you were in my position - how would you set yourself up? what would you put under glass , and same for the tunnel.
Thanks for reading - i look forward to getting a few ideas and pointers ..
