Greenhouse - reglaze or buy a new one ?!

Posted: 17/04/2015 at 11:53

Thanks for all your replies - although I ticked the box for an email when I received a response nothing came thru so I thought you'd all deserted me ! I'm working out how to add a photo to show you. It was previously glazed with a mixture of hort glass ( which was thrown away unfortunately) and ancient yellowed Perspex   Ideally I'd like polycarbonate or toughened glass- I will take a look locally to see if there's a glass shop Who could quote me.  I'm sure I've seen online a complete set of non yellowing Perspex for greenhouses but I can't find it again !

I've been given the frame of a greenhouse from my sister. It has curved roof sides and looks very similar to a Halls supreme - but there are no labels on it and my sister has no idea of the make. It has no glass so needs re glazing. I'd like to use polycarbonate or toughened glass - does anyone have an idea how much it would cost to reglaze completely and where to get polycarbonate / glass - I've looked online but everything is geared up to replacing the odd pane and not the whole lot !! Also, as its dismantled at the moment presumably I'd have to assemble it to then measure all the panes ? Or is it 'best' to buy a new one - reluctant to do so as I'd like to make use of what I've got. Any thoughts ?

Thanks for all your advice-its much appreciated.  I will go with the 120l bags and a lot of digging !! I'm working most of this weekend so I'll start the hard work next week - perhaps the weather will have warmed up by then !

Buying compost online?

Over the weekend I assembled two veg beds - 6x3 and 8" deep for my first serious venture into veg growing. I'm aiming to get two further beds of the same size. But, what to fill them with? I've looked online at places like compostdirect and other similar sites as they all do 900l and 450l bags of compost. Has anyone ever used these companies? I don't think the axle on my car would cope with being loaded up with great quantities of 60l compost bags from the local DIY store !!
