Greenhouses - how big is too big?
We moved house last year from a 200-year-old cottage with just a courtyard (no garden) to a townhouse with a 33' x 16' garden...not huge by any stretch of the imagination but a garden nonetheless!
I used to have a large allotment with a polytunnel, which I do miss but getting another allotment is not practical, so I want to include a greenhouse in the new garden but I am worried about what size to choose - too small and it will soon be outgrown but too large will overtake the garden.
Having scoured the internet for advice, all I seem to see is get the biggest you can afford - if I choose a 6' x 8', I will soon be disappointed at the lack of space for growing so an 8' x 10' is a better size...but does this sound too big for my size garden?
I have seen an 8' x 10' greenhouse that I really like
I mainly want to grow salads, peppers, tomatoes, cucumbers, chillies and melons in the greenhouse and outside a mix of a few veggies in amongst some flowers...cottage garden style.
I would be very grateful for any advice
