It's been good for raising bedding plants to sell. I chose a different product for the high tunnel, Warp's is the brand. It is an opaque plastic, not clear. It does not have as much "solar oven value", which I need in the very early spring when starting young plants, but quickly becomes a cooling burden in hot weather. Once the temperature hits the 90s, the clear plastic is miserable to be under, even with the greenhouse ends and sides open. The opaque plastic diffuses the light and is much better for growing tomatoes in hot weather.
