Greenhouse bar capping

Posted: 18/03/2015 at 18:20
I'm in the process of restoring an old greenhouse and want to replace the old glazing clips with bar capping. Does anyone know any good places to source this type of thing? The glazing at present sits between a wooden frame like this... --!!!-- with glass either side the middle bit being about 1 cm thick.

Sorry Des I disagree. He probably spend at least 15 mins getting to you and then 15 mins getting home plus 5 mins setting up. So that 1 hour for ??35.

Then He had to pay for his van and equipment plus petrol plus the solution and then all his insurances and taxes.

Actually ??35 sounds pretty good. Of course doing it yourself is always cheaper as you can cut out most of these costs.

You can buy stickers for wheelie bins with pretty flowers on maybe you can cut one to size. That way it will loom could all year around.

Raised Bed Advice Please

I will be making some raised beds up soon. Could I use turf on the bottom or should I let it rot down first.

grass cutting

the odd winter cut on a dry day to 'tidy up' it fine on a high setting. Otherwise wait until grass starts growing in late march/April.

too early, lawn will be bare for a long time and weeds will get in.

Thanks for the advice.

I was thinking of bidding on this:

Although to be honest its getting a bit high on price now and i'm not sure I can get it taken down without breaking it to pieces!!

Remove box hedging?

Too far from me. I suggest you stick them on eBay if you don't want them. Probably worth a ??5 a plant minimum.
