Talkback: Greenhouse fund



  • LynLyn DevonPosts: 16,837

    I have 3 aluminium greenhouses and last year purchased a walk in type plastic covered one, last week in the gales it took off, bending the metal bars and ripping the cover, I managed to get all the plants out of it, taking 3 hours in the rain and winds that were blowing me almost over!.

    I will not be buying another, they may be ok in very sheltered gardens, but for me it was a constant headache, everytime the wind got up, we were out there re inforcing it, it had more ropes than a ships rigging!.

    If you can afford it, go for alu, it doesnt need to be expensive top of the range, mine were really cheap and they are all good.

    I have just bought a roll of bubble wrap and fittings for about £20.00 total so that will be all 3 lined this winter.
