greenhouse advice needed
i am going to buy a greenhouse, i wanted a 6x8ft but just can't fit it in however much i try, we have a large old brick built bbq which my husband is reluctantly going to knock down (he only built it two yrs ago so i can have a greenhouse so reluctantly i will have to have a 5x6ft or thereabouts.
1) will i be able to get much in it? i really want it for seed sowing & taking cuttings, roughly how many standard trays on top shelf will it fit if i stage it all the way around? is that a good idea?
2) i would be happy with horticultural glass but as i have two grandsons 3&11, i think i'll have to go with toughened glass or the plastic stuff (polycarbonate is it)? is the plastic loud when raining & colder than the glass?
it will stand on indian stone paving, is this ok? i have seen some that have a strip of soil down one side, what is the purpose of this?
any other tips etc will be very much appreciated
