Greenhouse up!

Finally managed to get the greenhouse put up this afternoon. This 4’x2′ greenhouse is a standard aluminium framed greenhouse with plastic glass that you buy as a flat pack. It cost me just short of £100 off the internet but you can buy the same one from B&Q for a similar price.

Douglas the cat project managed the installation from inside the kitchen window, but did come out on site to inspect the quality of the work from time to time.

I’ve moved my seedlings in there from the kitchen windowsill, they were OK but were getting a bit ‘leggy’ – they will get a much better all-round daylight in the new greenhouse.

    Is it attached to the wall?

      Yes it is, but the wall is painted pebbledash and there is a gap, especially at the bottom where the wall is recessed slightly.

      I’m going to cut a couple of bits of wood to fit the gaps at the bottom, and then I will try to seal it all the way around with silicone sealer.

    Congratulations. I spent the same time erecting my first greenhouse. Amazing how difficult it was to get all the glass in straight. Maybe I needed a cat supervisor like you had!
