Irrigation in the greenhouse

Posted: 24/06/2014 at 08:07

This is a subject that I have spent a lot of time on. What I settelled for was a fantastic kit on eBay for 15 pounds for three kits which is just excellent value for money as these kits come with everything you need appart from the timer. You can route it around your green house and away you go.

If you go on to eBay and search watering systems. You will find a page that does three complete kits for 15 pounds, the kit has everything that you need appart from the timer. I have installed this around my garden and is an excellent kit for a fraction of the price of the Hozelock system.

Best Base for Greenhouse?

Posted: 20/06/2014 at 07:53

I have just purchased a 6x6 Pelram Harmony Greenhouse. I thought long and hard about how to do the base as I was building on uneven grass. I came up with an idea that I had seen used before and that is to forget about the ground for the moment as that would take too long to level out. Instead I purchased some M10 studding and some M10 nuts along with a bag of post fix cement. I will cut the studding into 12 inch lengths and put a but on the end and cement them in place.So now I have threaded posts in the ground. I fix a M10 but to each post and lay the base on top. I then adjust each but until the base is level. I then put a locking nut on top to hold the base in place. Then build the greenhouse that is now secure and level and any alterations to the ground can be done after to tidy up and make good.
