Greenhouse exposed to wind advice needed

Posted: 02/04/2015 at 16:26

I wouldn't double the material as that may have the effect of giving you a solid wall, and 12 inches may well be too close, 2-3 ft yes, or why not get the stronger glass for the one side of the greenhouse which faces the wind. Adding glazing clips will mean the glass won't give in a wind. Contrary to belief, glass has a slight flex in wind. Making it firmer with glazing clips will reduce the flex.

Dig it up chop it into pieces with a spade and replant. Geraniums can cope with it.

Online plant ordering

Unfortunately J Parkers have a reputation for supplying such stuff. Have alook the Good Guys thread, link below for recommended suppliers which forum members have used.

You must remember you have your statutory rights, and it applies to plants, just like anything else.

Cotoneaster franchetii query

It's semi evergreen Kev, so I wouldn't worry too much, it's been a cool spring so far so give it a chance. A feed and light prune will encourage new growth.

what licence to sell produce do I get?

If your'e selling from your own premises then you don't need a street traders licence.

Street traders licences are exactly what they sound like for trading on the public highway, I still remember the definition from my Police years. You won't be on the public highway so you won't need one. As for planning consent you would have to substantially change the use of the property you are selling from, ie building work, so again that doesn't apply, unless of course you open a Garden Centre in your back garden.

As far as I know you don't need a licence, unless you operate as a street trader or market stall holder, licences for which are obtained from your local authority.
