I am buying a greenhouse
I hope to grow fruit and veg most of the year in it
It will be
8 x 8
3 autovents and possibly a louvre vent
Should i pay extra for a more reputible brand
Should i save lots of money and buy secondhand
How should i lay the greenhouse out
If you're confident and able I'd buy second hand; look around and there are some absolute bargains out there which means you'll have more money for seeds etc.
Both of my greenhouses are second hand.
As for laying out: that depends on what types of vegetables you want to grow.
Daniel, that is the description of my greenhouse. Mine was not second hand but my brother and I erected it. Do you want staging all round or just down one side? Do you want a border down one side for things like tomatoes and cucumbers? These are decisions you alone can make.
Thanks for the advice i have just bought a second hand greenhouse. Anything i can sow in it in september?
