what do you have in your greenhouses?  are they on your allotment plot?

Fruitcake thanks for the tips

do you think a garden marker is ok - it says water and fade resistant - alcohol based ink

Going to contact council to see if allowed 2 gh first - still not sure but need to decide

Hello all

Have a slight dilemma found a free greenhouse on gumtree emailed but no reply till really late

I found another greenhouse free emailed and got a quick response went looked at it yesterday evening going to dismantle that and get it on Saturday with a free potting table for my allotment plot size 5.5 by 7.5 feet

Now have an email from the other person first person to email them can't have a greenhouse with glass on their allotment - I am second person so offered to me - size 6 by 8 feet  - do I have two greenhouses on my allotment plot?  do I have enough room   Help

Yes with the greenhouse going on Saturday to take it down then bring it home for a while till plot ready - 5.5 feet by 7.5 feet big and a free potting table which is great

Now have a dilemma with the fact I spotted one free greenhouse on gumtree emailed no reply for ages till late - then spotted the other one in between for free - getting that one

The first person which was going to get the other greenhouse can now not have it as not allowed a glass greenhouse on their allotment site 

Me being second on the list that contacted them have now been offered that one as well 6 by 8 feet  - unsure what to do - can I fit 2 greenhouse on my plot

Hello all did write a post but internet went down

Thanks Hollie hock

GWRS great you got the shed put up for you, do want a shed with a pent roof been looking on gumtree and online places not found one I want yet

I have also been looking on gumtree for a greenhouse cheap or free

did look up pallet shed but not sure about that looks hard to construct

Fruitcake is she near your plot?  I seem to be scratching my head - maybe she wanted different location or plot size

Tootles  great you have another raised bed  - quite a few seedlings still in plastic greenhouse the Autumn sown sweet peas are out and spring ones outside in trays and doing well, calendula out in flower bed and some for a hanging basket, morning glory going up sweet pea wire finally got 2 larkspur seeds up   

Sunflowers in coldframe thinking a week or two to put them out  may put out a few flowers next weekend think more of the hardy plants can be out

Hello GWRS I have watched them think they were enjoyable to watch some good ideas and tips from them and Joe Swift and the others - really like when they got all the plant delivered and went around picking them in the garden centre place

I suspect they found out ages ago and had not to tell anyone, think they all would be making their gardens in these last couple of weeks at Chelsea  

Question where did you buy your sheds from to who that had to? 

I am thinking some time not too far off to get one but don't want to spend that much on one

My zinnias are about 2 inches tall and look ok one has come out with strange leaves, but not the GW seeds as I forgot to sow them still inside the mag somewhere - some mixed colour seeds  

Fidgetbones what a nice vase

Tootle how is your raised beds did you get any more?

Sanjy67 really like your planters and lettuce frame and bird houses so good what can be made out of pallets

Think we all do great recycling

Just need to find some light weight pallets I can make a fence out of for the allotment plot front
