Hi LeighAnne, is it an aluminium frame? If so, the glass is held in with wire clips. Be extremely careful though as old horticultural glass is very brittle and tends to easily break in long extremely sharp pieces when handled, so you need to be well protected all over your body. If the frame is undamaged, it would be possible to reglaze it, perhaps with polycarbonate replacement panels as those are child-safe. If you advertised an aluminium framed greenhouse on freecycle as "free but must be dismantled by collector and all broken glass taken away", I have no doubt it would go to a good home and you wouldn't have to pay someone to dismantlle/dispose of it for you.
Old rotten wooden greenhouses are a different matter.
It will cost about £50 to reglaze it with strong polycarbonate.
blairs i think it will cost more than £50 1 sheet of side pannel cost £7.99 here to replace it would be great if you could forward where you get it from at that price thanks.
LeighAnne I saw in one of the Gardencentres a a netted frame like a fruit net with and it looked like a poly tunnel it was amazing as it would be childfriendly no glass.
So you could slip this over your frame.
And also make a feature of it.
I saw it in Brechin Garden Centre.
You could always advertise it on Gumtree I am sure someone would want it for spare parts. I have also seen greenhouse glass advertised on there so you may be able to reglaze it cheaper than you think. Good luck
