they'll be fine. get gardening.
I noticed that Aldi will have the little walk in greenhouses tomorrow
143 x 73 x 95 cm with racking. £29.99
Ideal for anyone who is just starting gardening and needs a bit of space instead of trying to cram everything on windowsills.
Loony, open it up during the day and just close it down at night as it cools down. Have confidence and just go for it. We all mistakes, and that's how we learn.
yeaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah. welcome to the club. Keep us posted.
I bought one, two years ago. It was great for hardening off the surplus from the main greenhouse. As hostafan says, roll up the door in the day when the sun shines and roll it down at night. The cover will probably only last two years. I'm using the racking in my new poytunnel, as the cover was past it, and I've gone for bigger this time.
£70 for a 2m x 3m It was doing great until the blackbird got trapped in it yesterday.
He must have been sunning himself or dozing when I closed it up the other day. Yesterday was so cold I didn't open it, this morning was carnage.
the builders started digging out for the base of my new polytunnel yesterday. Soooooooo excited.
I bought wilko's last year but must've been unlucky, it tore immediately & buckled under the weight! I find the plastic greenhouses are cheap and cheerful, but pretty much have to buy a new one each year.
I am a big fan of them to because it's perfect for my tiny garden. They do seem to protect any seedlings from late frosts but I do cover them with fleece too, just in case on very cold nights. The only negatives that I can think of, other than making sure it's secure, is that slugs and snails like going in and the plant soil can go moudly if the door isn't opened every day as they do get humid. Oh - and my cat likes to sleep on the top shelf!
The one I have now is a gardman mini polytunnel. The old one was a walk in greenhouse from lidl, but the same as the aldi photo.
they are a waste of money and time buy the real thing it lasts longer looks nicer .
