New Hoop House under construction

Posted 1/16/2012 3:06pm by Kent Miles.

In January of 2012 , Illinois Willows has started contruction of our first Hoop House ( High Tunnel ). We have chosen a 30' x 72' house. We plan to finish by mid March weather permitting . The first year we plan to grow Celosia, Rosemary, Ageratum, Delphinum , Lisianthus, Ornamental Peppers, Basil to name a few. The first year I will try several varieties to see what produces the best results. It's looking like a definite learning curve this spring.

We are using the Hoop House in a fairly new program with the NRCS,  ( Natural Resources Conservation Service ) , its a 3 year program to improve plant health,vigor and production .This program will extend our growing season. What plants and numbers are inside, matching numbers will need to be planted outside for the comparison . The tunnel will provide earlier plantings and a later harvest of flowers than those grown in the field.
