Hi, it sounds like you'd need go post a photo. Good luck.

Complete novice getting started

Veg and other seeds have been for sale in also at 19p a packet, worth a look. But check sowing dates and expiry dates first.

A plant from steel city - sounds like one should be in my garden! And punkdocs.
Dove, how could you? A picture of that awful irritating man invading garden space - give me the hedge man and his friend any day! (tea thread)

Morning all, dark again! Enjoy your holiday (mini or otherwise) Chicky. Hope your're feeling better Dove (hurry up and get well or we'll be thinking you're a man cos it's sounding like the dreaded manflu). Work again for me today.OH says he will 'think' about (I think that means price up in manspeak) the growhouse over the weekend. Only problem being that he's working all day Sat and I'm out most of day Sun.

Good evening, and it is evening - dark already.

is it the weekend yet? I'm getting nowhere in the garden and only got Saturday this weekend so hope the weather's ok.

OH not really commented on greenhouse building plans (greenhouse is probably a bit of an overstatement, should go back to calling it a grow house). But at least I've got some good ideas both on growhouse (should it appear) and general overwintering now.

It's not even Friday is it? No GW. Might try to watch Educating Yorkshire again.

Might catch up later or see y'all in the morning.


green house design, advice and experiences please

furthe notes to self (or to OH) ...


I saved some secondary glazing units which were made redundant by double glazing

The top is stuff you can buy cut to size at B&Q/Homebase, and you can also buy the white trim to finish the edges.  The hole has been drilled so that I can stick in a bamboo cane to stop the lid blowing shut (sophisticated !!) - I am sure there are lots more things you coud do to allow it to be open half way

 twinwall polycarbonate sheet (10mm thick by the look of yours) and it's important to put those end trims on otherwise spiders etc get inside the 'tubes' and you can never clean them out.

A few notes to self, from other threads,

And start collecting saving sheets of discarded polystyrene now - it'll be useful in the winter to insulate the coldframe if you're over-wintering tender plants
