Greenhouse solutions



This solution solves three problems.

1 easier to keep smaller area warm in winter.

2 shaded area in summer

3 higher humidity for those plants that like these conditions

    4. Stops the dreaded thing bowling around the garden in the wind.

    Ha ha! Lyn we had that problem last year - the poor plastic pop up greenhouse ended up tied to the house with luggage straps in a bid to protect it.

    I've got mine in the greenhouse now - although since the greenhouse hit 30'C with the door open (vent is broken) yesterday we hopefully wont be needing the double insulation much longer and I'll take the plastic cover off (clean it) and use it as racking.

    Lyn, you took the words out of my mouth when I saw one of those plastic greenhouses.  I had two, and both of them 'died' in windy weather.  This seems a much better place for them, because the real world is a bit too 'elements heavy' for them.  Mine were in a south facing stable yard with walls on four sides and still took a pasting.
