Greenhouse Advice

Thanks everyone for your replies much appreciated.  It's given me plenty of insight for my greenhouse planning, and probably more questions.  Will likely post my plan/ideas when I've had a ponder, and hopefully some of you helpful peeps could  tell me if I'm on the right lines.  Thanks again.

Hi all,  I am hoping to buy a greenhouse this year and was wondering if you have any advice / experience you could share.  I'm considering a 10' x 8' as this is the largest size that will fit in the space I have.  I can't decide whether to go for polycarbonate or glass.  Also, which makes / suppliers are reliable.  Is a solid concrete base a good idea?   I  have wondered if the base should have some drainage.  Any info / advice would be appreciated.  Thanks.

Might be wrong, but Elemental might be glad of a friend.  It looks fairly remote where he/she is.  Although, suppose you have to like the quite life is you're going to live 'on a rock in the atlantic'.

Apparently it helps to 'sign in' in order to edit the map .  I've put you back on dry land Hollie Hock where it says Monmouth.  Hope this is nearer to home for you.

Hollie Hock, I'm very concerned about your situation at the moment.  You're drifting out to sea off the north Wales coast.  I did try to drag you back to shore, but was unsuccessful.  Maybe some else could try and get you home.

It is fun. Keeps us amused when it's midwinter out there and housework seems a step too far.

Your a woman 'after my own heart' (if you know that saying) - heaven forbid that I should have to do some boring household chores!
