Greenhouse inspiration

We had this old brick/wooden greenhouse when we moved into our house last October, We’ve never done any D.I.Y but this seemed like a fun project!

Spent about £200, biggest expense was the new Perspex, few bits to finish off and then it’ll be done.

we’ve planted three tomatoes, Jalapeño and a Habanero. 

I hope it gives some of you some inspiration to fix up an old greenhouse!

    It looks great. Make me want to save up for a greenhouse  😀
  • I ended up going round with a drill and nail and testing to see what was rotten, I had to replace all of the front beams and two side beams, these were about £4 each from Wickes. Lick of paint and some wood filler and it’s not to bad! Thanks for kind words! 👍🏼

    Fantastic job, it looks brilliant!
    I’ve no idea what I’m doing.
