 I have used toughened glass as im a bit lethal around anything breakable.So far so good.Managed to fall backwards into a greenhouse many years ago. Only got cut elbows so was very lucky. Go for the best you can afford, and most of all enjoy your greenhouse and garden. Good grief im sounding like Alan Titchmarsh

Sonds good to me. My greenhouse is east to west so gets the sun all day. I have automatic openers on the windows in the roof which has saved my plants many days when ive forgotten to open the door. Bit more expensive but well worth it.

Sounds like they are starting to flower. Have had the same problem myself. Use them first as they dont keep. Its all down to the weather.

What's the weather like in your area?

Bright and sunny here on the south coast. Have been to allotment today cant believe how much the weeds have grown. Picked my 1st lot of home grown strawberries, so much better than shop bought.Out in the garden this afternoon need to move a compost bin, what fun.

Bright and sunny today although it is windy. Had treatment for my dodgy back yesterday so am sat in front of telly and catching up on emails. Hope the weather tomorrow is good so i can catch up. At least the water butts are full.

My next door neighbours have chickens and we have had more mice since then. The little darlings were nesting in a compost bin and i only found them when i turned it out. It was like a scene from alien, all these tiny baby mice crawling around i felt quite sick. Luckily i have a cat that is a good hunter and pointed him in the right direction. If it happens again i will lock the cat flap so i dont get any presents.Your local council should have names of pest control people. Or you could get a cat.

I use those plant supports that you can clip together. They work wonders until the cat decides to join in. Dont give up because poopies are beautiful.

Still very windy here on the south coast but we do have sunshine in the bits where there are no clouds, does that make sense? Hate working in the wind find it very tiring so catching up with greenhouse and indoor chores. Hope tomorrow is better.
