my only disappointment is the automatic window openers leave a gap when closed and we have tried everything to alter them.  My dad ended up filing off one of the bits that stops them shutting completely.  I will only bubblbe wrap the windows and louvres this winter as it caused quite bad condensation this year.  Also i would recomend a half on concret and half on earth if possible as tomatoes need staking and this makes growbags leak on the floor!

Hope you've decided what to plum for I'm sure whatever you decide will be great fun am jealous that I can't afford on of the cedar ones they look fab

Hi Tooles i'll just add my experience here.  i had an apex roofed polycarbonate greenhouse on bare earth for  a couple of years when i moved to my current house in 2003.  unfortunately after fierce weather and high winds the door was completely ripped off and it did flex quite noisily.  i had to remove it all.  when my uncle died 5 years ago noone wanted his aluminium B&Q 6x8 ft greenhouse so my then fiancee and a friend took 3 trips to dismantle and get it to our garden (10 miles away).  It was erected on a concrete base and we added automatic roof openers x2 &  2 louvre wall vents.  i can honestly it has given hours of fun and successes.  This year I lined it with bubble wrap for the winter and had a propagator and heated mat to start seedling off in spring

Thanks for the comments it's given me some ideas to check and ponder.  the bush has been fed this year but not mulched-usually bark chippings and it does look healthy.  I will check it closely tomorrow and hopefully get a pic up.

hi Christopher this is a self-fertile bush i bought at Harrogate Spring show about 4 years ago.  it is planted in the ground now after out-growing its pot.  I put ericaceous compost round it every couple of years and it is well-watered but with fence behind so some shade late aft.   still confused this year as  somethings are great and some abismal
