Mine is only 8x6 i think - too small - not enough space for a larger one. It's full of overwintering pots and pelargonium plants at the moment, plus a few flower seeds (ever hopeful), parsley, rocket, salad leaves. I'll be planting a few pepper seeds soon in a propagator, then it's time to start the tomato seeds.... I don't use the garden soil as we are very sandy here. I grow the tomatoes in bags of compost rather than grow bags as i got better results - turn the bag on its side to make a deeper bed and only 2 plants per bag. I read this advice in a GW several years ago & have taken it ever since. One other thing, when we bought the GH we invested the extra for a self opening light, just on one side - a boon when we are on holiday. Wish we had done the other side too! This cost about £30 but that was 10years ago!
