Greenhouse or poly tunnel

Posted: 13/06/2012 at 08:39

Hi, Ive had both polytunnel and greenhouse. The polytunnel is great if you get it right. It can very very hot in there (very quickly) so you need to be so aware of ventilation and lots of watering, its potentially alot of work. I had to leave mine in my last garden no room now. A glass greenhouse is nice to look at but if your in a wind tunnel forget it you'll be permanently replacing glass I reckoned I could have bought a new one with the money I put into new panes. I now have replaced the glass with polycarbonate that we bought of ebay and Im delighted with it. The snow falls off it or unlike glass if it does get heavy the panes just drop into the greenhouse but dont break.. They have been known to blow out in a wind and they can travel some distance so Im now going to put dods of clear silicone on corners so they cant pop out. The polycarbonate doesnt need shading and  isnt as direct a heat on the plants. I really do like it. Thats my take on it anyway see what others say.  Happy gardening Jenny

New site - is it easy to use?

Id like the edit button to work and to be able to look at my list of previous posts I cant get past page 1. Im really enjoying the site. Gardening is very important in my life. Im a busy working mum with two grown up boys who still live at home so to be able to escape into the garden or sign into gardeners world (now Ive discovered forums) and chat to lke minded people its great.

Hi John, Ive done a couple of ponds now. I think you'll regret not doing it deeper, once its done thats it. Its a great project I loved my ponds we moved house and have no room for one now. We had a great diving water beetle in ours its the scariest beetle you'll come across, google them

I would say its ok, not alot you can do now anyway its there. Keep your greenhouse well ventilated. I dont shut my greenhouse when overnight temperatures are 15c or  more. Its only 5c with us at the moment in the Scottish Highlands so not leaving mine open for a while yet. But see what others think too

Some bamboo are very invasive and can get to amazing heights. Have you thought of bamboo hedging you'll buy a roll of this from the local diy store or garden centre and then its instant privacy and alot cheaper!

clematis alpina goes mad with me Ive got it growing over my oil tank its gong mad. My wee terrier has damaged it so many times trying to catch birds (thankfully unsuccessfully) and it grows from the bottom again. Its in full sun on the oil tank but equally happy growing up an archway in shade
