Only been to Chelsea once many years ago , great day out , however , must remember it is a show

Hello , I have Rabbits on my allotment and I have fenced it in but had 2 wooden gates with slates so I have stapled chicken wire to the bottom third and so far it has kept them out !

Build a new fruit cage

Hello everybody , I have recently been lucky enough to get an extension to my allotment and I was thinking of building a fruit cage and wondered if there is any advice out there ? 

Greenhouse Shading

Hello , I don't disagree with Mike but for ease and cost , simple shading inside an aluminium greenhouse does work

Ventilation is very important and damping the floor also works well 

Lets hope we have a good summer

O/L  I am going to B & Q on Wednesday , pensioners discount day I'll have a look if they have any and tell you what's called

just been to the greenhouse it's 81 , without shading I'm sure it would be in the 90+

having a cup of coffee , what a beautiful sunny day

 Hello O/L , my shading fits on the inside with plastic lugs , very easy to fit and purchased at B/Q , I also use some greenhouse nuts to secure the tops and edges

it goes on the roof and down half of the sides , I don't bother with front or rear but it would depend on the position of the greenhouse to the sun

I have an automatic window opener and to compensate for that I just have it a bit loose over that bit

just thought my greenhouse is aluminium frame ,not sure what you would do if wooden

best of luck
