. First grade loose root plants

Yes, exactly - however, now we know what to expect if ordering "loose root". We live and learn.

Hi.Thanks for your replies. I also googled it Mark but nothing seemed to explain the term. I had been looking at a Hosta Philippa but other plants used that term too. The company I was looking at was J Parkers, who I have dealt with before and their plug plants were great.  I imagine the loose root  means free from (without) soil and so is similar to bare root. Will probably just give it a try and satisfy my curiosity..

Hi. Can anyone tell me   what size  First grade loose root plants are ? That is the description given on a nursery website of plants I was looking at. Any other size descriptions would be useful too if anyone knows of any.  Many thanks.

Oh that's a shame - in fact it is terrible !!  Why is nothing straightforward?  After looking forward to getting it assembled and getting started you are left feeling disappointed and angry. It wasn't even cheap, I would say. Mine was cheap and I also had a problem with a piece which was broken and screws not long enough to hold the roof in place. However, the company did rectify it without quibble. I am not sure how it will be in the wind mind you !!  Hopefully you get yours sorted and you are happy with it in the end. Happy gardening. x

Well finally I  made up my mind......I have just bought an inexpensive double cold frame to start my seeds / harden off plants for this year anyway. This has let me get on with it and even if I decide to buy a full greenhouse later, this cold frame will be fine for hardening off my plants so it will still be of use to me. Thanks all for your suggestions. How did you get on with yours Little Miss Sunshine?

I am quite sure you will be pleased with it.  It looks attractive and if it is big enough for your purpose, that is all you need. I hope it is dry on Wednesday / Thursday so that you can get it assembled. Good  luck. Hear from you soon.

Thanks for sending the link. I would be looking for a bit more depth though. However, it certainly looks ideal.  I really think that if I bought that size I would soon be wishing I had gone for something bigger. I am going to look at that website and see if they have a bigger size.  Hope you are happy with your purchase when it arrives and I am quite sure you will be able to construct it. I would be interested to hear how you get on. Thanks for now.

Thanks. I think an 8 x 6 or 6 x 6 will be big enough for my requirements. The last one was 8 x 6 but at that timeI grew a lot of bedding plants to sell to a local shop. I am not doing that now. Hoping to get one with polycarbonate glazing this time - I think these panels come in a complete length rather than the 2' x 2' (or whatever) that my last one with toughened glass had. That may be easier to work with too. Decisions, decisions !! My husband thinks I am worrying too much about he is going to install it. He said he will manage fine !! (time will tell ).

Thanks for your replies.  I had plastic covered "greenhouse" / "frame" before but while they were fine for hardening off plants, that is not what I want now. I am looking for a sturdy structure. I would prefer one that I could walk into as I do enjoy spending time pottering about there. I would pay up to about £400 but don't feel I want to pay any more. Just really wondered if anyone knows of a brand which may be fairly easy to construct. Thanks
