Talkback: How to make a mini-greenhouse

Really like this idea, useful and looks good too!


  • pretty cool, i like it and really useful.
  • fab, now i have a use for all the spare wine boxes atfer moving house!
  • Looks great but I'm a female who has never done carpentry so I think it's a no no for me :(
  • I love this idea. I'm totally going to try it. Also I think this will look good along my fence if I make a few of them.
    I cant wait to make them! just gotta find me some wine boxes and acrylic!
  • Looking for a wall-mounted little greenhouse, I came across this which would be exactly what I need! However, I think it would benefit from more illustrations showing the shape as cuts are made and so on, and especially a clearer illustration of the finished item. I'm going to have a try anyway as it's a very handy idea and I can't find anything similar to buy.
  • Lovely idea- will try it out, thanks

    Excellent idea! Clearer illustrations please of the step by step instructions as the project takes shape and, as others have said, a clearer view of the finished article. Just a little tip for cutting acrylic (especially for the ladies!) the acrylic is easier to cut in neat lines if you warm it with a hair-dryer! image A tip I learnt whilst secondary glazing my house.

    Any chance of some wider shots of the stages in making this mini greenhouse? This would make it easier to see what's going on at each stage - the close-ups are great for detail but hard to follow for someone with little experience of carpentry.

    Why being female does that stop you making this mini greenhouse? Comments like this are not helpful
